My Ship Won't Tip

My Ship Won't Tip

A Poem by Kristin Lee
"

Love get's us through

"

Wildly flung through the air

Like volatile salty spray

Cast from rough and swirling seas;

I cling to every moment

So I won’t fall apart.

                        

Images locked away

Like Da Vinci’s lost and stolen art;

Stored in secret catacombs,

Protected by the pitch black labyrinth

Creating the bowels of my mind.

 

Warmed by the brush of your hand

Here under the star kissed sky

Tires thrumming against wet asphalt

I’m met by a stark reminder

Of mortal consequences.

 

Hot tears flood the deck

Without speaking a word

Our hearts bow before it all

Yet this moment…is right.

 

Moved by the truth to imitate Mona Lisa

The most tenuous smile graces supple lips;

With love on our side

Even in the darkest storm

My ship won’t tip.

This is quite beautiful, and the concept is both bright and poignant at the same time. I love the flow, and the feelings evoked. Well done.

I can feel your steady lines full of emotional vessels with love in their ballast to make it out of the stormy seas. I was reminded of this song while I finished reading your poem. Great imagery and comparisons with the DaVinci references. Keep on sailing!

Ah love, there is nothing it can not make better. Even on these stormy seas, we rest in each other's love, unafraid. Very nicely done Kristin. I really enjoyed this. You took me on a voyage and returned me safely to shore.
