Shipwrecked

You are drifting,
Cool waters underneath,
Star-speckled siftings-
Calling, still calling
To sink, to give in,
To succumb, to drown, so easy
So simple.
The stars, too, reach for you
Always in sight, always singing
Praises of unattainable heights.
You’re so close,
So soon you’ll be there,
That impossible there,
With them, unreachable
The choir twinkles.
Just stop drifting,
Just stop sinking,
Stop doubting –
And rise.

  1. This is very sweet and well constructed. Love to see you experimenting with different writing styles. You write a gnarly dense, dark poem but this is really clean and sharp. Keep cranking them out.
