Lost At Sea

Lost At Sea

A Poem by chloe

Living on an island gets lonely sometimes
but I feel it most when they turn off the lights
I gave up saying "someone listen to me" 
not even a mega phone can awake the sea
anyway the fish have nothing to say
And the birds just want someone to prey
I find its safest to hide in my own cave
Where they can’t rain on my little parade
And I don’t know who I am in a world of broken mirrors
my head is a constant blur for there is no bed time here 

I tried to make a ship
So I could avoid the trip
But they won’t let me go 
They say it’s not the way wind blows
if you were on an island
you would understand more 
but I don’t blame you for not knowing
especially when you can’t cross the shore

But I’m unlike you, and you’re unlike me
and that’s why I'll always let you run free
I figure if I run fast enough they won’t see
And maybe they’ll even forget about me
But the words I speak are never heard
My mind is imprisoned and misunderstood
And the words I speak are never heard
I only repeat for the fish and the bird

My eyes are always heavy 
Fit to match my heart
The lines are getting blurry
But they still keep me at the start
i know If I demand to be free
Ill only be shot next to my dignity
Because there’s nothing more threatening 
Than a girl with a big dream

Ill say it again, and ill say it once more
the fish never have anything to say
And the birds just want to settle the score
But its really all the same
Irrelevance and hate with a different name

So if I told you I believed 
In the dreams of the leaves
Would you laugh in my face
Or choose me to click & erase
Maybe I’m being irrational here
But there is always a root to fear
I guess what I’m saying is I hate being alone
But maybe it’s better than being a joke

Awesome. I think we can all relate to the feeling of being imprisoned, whether by our thoughts or the actions of another. You're very talented! Keep up the great work!
