And Aqua Promised

Apologies for not being around much - I do try to get a poem popped if I can - life is very hard and hectic at the mo - but I will catch up with you all in a few days........promise!
                         ----------------------------------------------------------
Stood on the enticing bow
overboard but don't know how

A cooling comfort, tingled skin
aqua waves, immortal sin

Hanging on to flotsam junk
my vain pretences now all sunk

No life vest on, a heart in drought
whose lighthouse beam has just gone out

Still falling, ever falling deep,
chasing that elusive sleep

Saturation, breathing pains
saline reminders, drying veins

Crystal clear comes to my aid,
helps me fuel this this lone cascade 

Floating through a bowl of stars,
night time reflections leaving scars

Midnight ocean, sink me far
however lonesome or bizarre

Just let me wake among the sands,
where Neptune ruled the bedded land.

Your poem has perfectly captured my feelings of a helpless freefall.
Life is indeed hard and hectic......

De Jackson said...

Ohhhh. This is haunting. Especially love this:
"Midnight ocean, sink me far" ...a mantra.

Hey Jon! Thanks for the comment - I think my poem reflects a bit of how I'm feeling right now, too. I'm usually a humorous poet.....

Helena said...

One of my worst fears is drowning. This was beautifully written but so eerie! Remember those life vests!

Gail said...

Wonderful poem or a wonderfully written sad poem...
