And Found

And Found

A Poem by Akasha
"

Sequel to "Shipwrecked"

"

The beacon of despair won’t keep you

From these shores

For time and time again,

You’ve come crashing

 

The gritty white sand,

So hot it could melt your skin,

Matches your gritty, witty, overindulged personality.

 

My Sailor,

Did you heed my warnings?

Believe you me,

You should have.

 

Your ships is in splinters,

 Your port is decayed (and falling apart);

Dear Sailor,

You’re finally alone.

 

The solace and silence of singularity

Is granted to you by the sea,

(Your heart is by the sea),

Is this what you wanted?

 

The crew that loved you,

 You pushed away.

The sexton that lead you onward,

You threw to the monsters below.

 

It’s a lonely world by yourself,

Dear Sailor,

But your mark is well left

On the ones who loved you most.

 

So where to now?

My Sailor, My Only Captain.

How far is forward?

How close is back?
