lost at sea

lost at sea

A Poem by joeysick

emptiness


i’m a ship without a captain

lost at sea, surrounded by hurtful memories

it’s pouring boulders, i’m carrying the world on my shoulders

what role does every word play

in the hearts of none but in the throats of many

i’d give anything to rip out their chest and make them bleed

make them see, make them believe

dangle their lives in the palm of my hand

make them scream, make them plead

beg for their lives back,

my pain, far gone, too real for an ice pack

frightful of the next blow,

i’m handcuffed to the show

the circus

nervous along the surface

too heated for the spice rack

i’m trying to get my life back

back from the grips of satan

i am just sayin'

don't wanna be the little boy wrapped in styrofoam

i'm trying to be the captain with his own milestones
