Adrift

They see me

Without a word

Through the sea white mist

Slow silent slip away

They see me

An empty vessel

Adrift from my moorings

Fading to the horizon

To move, like night, from sea to sea

They see me

Haze distanced

Lost to all and love

Hull down, alone

Eternally to drift

To tide or current whim

Sometime becalmed

Drifting

Sometime storm blasted

D...

sinking ship

My ship is sinking, 

while your ship has sailed...

 

Our attempt at love,

seems it has failed...

 

Maybe if we tried harder,

could have prevailed...

 

I'm crumbling into pieces

crashing against these waves

that are helping to rip my walls right apart

my ship sinking, a metaphor for my broken heart

 

Where did the love go? 

how did you and I go from bein...

Sinking Ships

entry picture

 One day this boat will be too heavy to float,

And the captain will say his goodbyes.

A song so sad will be sung on that night,

As the crew greets their friendly demise.

 

      I've run out of ways to diminish the waves you violently push towards my shore.

On my hands and knees. I beg, I say "please".

But the water is climbing up more.

 

      So for all of the people a...

CRYSTAL SHIP

 

CRYSTAL SHIP

 

Through my illuminated gunsight the small ship glistens silver in the sunlight,

it grows larger every second, my plane shaking with the recoil of my 30mm cannons.

My shells fly through the air like angry fireflies and the crystal ship disappears in a world of spray and fire, cutting across the sea and into the ship.

Mortal damage is done and it stops dea...

TRAPPED

 

TRAPPED

Trapped in this awful fucking life where I wanted to love but ruined the chance when I got it. I’ll never forget her but what does that matter now with defeat snapping at my heels, she fully understands the past snapping at her heels, like mine does. Her words, not mine. I surrender to the nightmare night-time dark veil of defeat and await my end. It came sooner than I thought...

GOYA

 

GOYA

Goya sailing to where? And with whom aboard? So many people each with a name, an age and a story; good or bad? What events led them to be aboard the Goya that night in the Baltic? All were aware of the Russians hot on their heels, better to flee by evacuation than face the wrath of Stalingrad and revenge of Leningrad amongst others. Treat others like they treat you. It was this p...

STEUBEN

Is it true that the Steuben was sunk in the war by the Soviets?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Is it true that many thousands died?                                                        ...

Two Kisses

How much are you worth asked a dear friend

'Two kisses and a cuddle' was the reply he did send

'Two kisses may be found for you with ease

But a cuddle is harder to blow through the breeze'

'Ah but cuddles are warm and can last so long

Please see if you can manage to blow very strong'

'Much as I might blow long with all of my might

I doubt you would get that hug afore tomorrow ...
