A Poem by likesgreeneggsandham

He’s a vacant page

The opposite of an enigma

As bare as a promise made

I couldn’t describe him now if my life depended on it

That large diamond ring hanging off a chewed fingernail

The pipe stuck down my throat to bring the pills back up

He’s as blank as when he blocked me

Yet each blank page holds a different set of secrets

The men I loved

And the ones like him I loved quite well enough

I tripped into bars with some

Through time and space with others

Yet he’s the only one who left me

Didn’t want to be a sailor

But rather a cruiser on the seas of life

I’m not sure what they brought him

Gentle waves and a cocktail umbrella?

Great storms brewed in my oceans

Crashing giants of lifetimes reared their heads

Beauty engulfed my ship and cannons of suffering were fired

I fought pirates on the high seas of madness

Lay down with mermaids near a rocky shore

I cannot say it’s been gentle but then

A true seaman never tires of it after all

We all have our seawalls to sit upon as we gaze off into the incoming waves flowing toward our feet.
The seas seem calmer when you sail together. Storms more exciting and less fearful. I truly like this
