Voyage to the Depth

Voyage to the Depth

A Poem by Adam M. Snow
"

Woe unto us, one of many, Yet was not the foe-of any- Unto us the storm crashing tides, But to sail on, voyage to the depth. I envy Seas, whereon we rides- By thee captain side, I stand tall.

Voyage to the Depth

By: Adam M. Snow

 

Woe unto us, one of many,

Yet was not the foe-of any-

Unto us the storm crashing tides,

But to sail on, voyage to the depth.

I envy Seas, whereon we rides-

By thee captain side, I stand tall.

 

Waves crashing upon the haul,

The creaks of soaked oaken rot.

A sound throughout the ship had caught.

Tossing and turning, the ship sailed not.

The thoughts of death upon us all,

Among this time, we all stand tall.

 

We await the time calming sea,

To sail this voyage once again.

We know not the curse may be,

But we know to sail on to the depth.

None-the-less to live on dreaming,

As we sail the moonlit tides gleaming.

 

A glistening light in the far distance,

Our only hope to our existence.

That might prove useful and yet never proves.

Closer we are, the further it moves.

 

Lest not give up hope,

For many should cope.

A journey seen fit till the end.

I should not dare to leave my friend,

But if we do not see the shore again,

I make mend of my very sin.

 

But the stormy seas rages still,

This voyage ceases to thrill.

Lightning clashes throughout the sky.

A time like this, all things must die.

 

Journey on to that dark horizon,

Until our bodies rot and wizen

All but I am sickened for home,

Out at sea, do we roam.

Many are ill since lost at sea,

All now knows what our curse may be.

 

Traveled the world, many times till now,

Onto the depth, our soul soon sail.

We leave behind our eternal vow,

Our promise to return to our love somehow.

 

We now sail down the river Styx,

Free from the havoc ocean tides.

Lost at sea, not a month but six,

As we leave behind our many brides.

 

Our vision's clearer than ever before,

Our voyage ends, not a glimpse of shore.

Our soul sails on, unto the abyss,

Our life's voyage went amiss.

We leave behind a story untold,

Many a child to whom never hold.

Gah! Greek Mythololgy oh yeah The Styx live! Kidding. I love your details they are very imagery and the beginning reminds me of MS. in a Bottle by Edgar Allan Poe with the boat and the ocean but you have a distinguishing way of writing your poems that make it have a similar taste but yet so different. Cool! :)

A real thrill ride into Dread Hades' realm! Fantastic in every detail. A fine piece of word-craft by an artist whose name should be held along side of Yeats!

This line was a bit of a forced line:

"For many should cope."

and what does "wizen" mean? Is this to meet the meter or something. If so, i don't mind it. I was just wondering what it meant.

However

Interesting, I picture vivid story here and a symbol of life all in one. I love the details instilled in this piece. I see you follow Poe's poetic style. Why is it that I think of more Odysseus though? Oh well. Any who, all I can say is bravo really.

Sincerely Livana Lowell (LL)

God bless

Turbulent images raise the awarness of the reader to unknown heights, it's forceful and powerful in one, well done, good read.
