Passage At Sea

I look back upon the wandering
life I left sqaundering, pondering
the path I blazed in this trampled dream
expound upon memories that intently seem
farther from memory, extra-sensory
parts of whole but split at the seams
ripped from the middle and torn far from me
hard for me, interconnected arteries
that hardly seem part of me
and when there is fog it is hard to see
the mist that surrounds it is haunting me
taunting me, i'm fragile though agile, and its calling me
like I've parted the ocean but then turn to see
the waves coming over to swallow me
the shadows they cast seem to follow me
my voice shrieking hollow in mutiny



in this instant my life seems to abandon me
certainly, vicious attacks seems a certainty
fervently, urging for solace not sympathy
impotent limping to higher ground, to shore from sea
blazing the trail I grasp avidly, screaming back at sea
salt stinging cuts, blood traces tears so its hard to see
latent, I bellow in agony, patiently grasp for air to breath
but my eyes deceive, idly biding their time for me
creating images I can hardly see
mirages create barrages of ships at a sea
their passing bows narrowly missing me
the end of this night blows her kiss to me
wishful thinking, beacon blinking just out of reach
and the outlooks bleak,
the siren voices grabbing hold of me
tap my soul to bleed, lapse of judgement gleams
as the waves swallow me into eternity.
