Sea Of Discontent~


It was an envious night
All tattered in green
The two-eyed monster - disturbed
Feeling it's ragefull & mean;
It was a no happy ever afters - night
Split and bent - out of place
A general electric - radio waves -kind of night
All sewn up in the viscous toxin's lace;
It was a dare you to even try it 'manually' kind of night
Where the moon & stars lit up the darkened sky
It was guided by: SOS - this hapless mess
The sailor's lost on the sea - longing to fly ever high;
It was an abyss kind of stormy night - indeed
The utter tragic of the deeps darkest infinity
It was the green - eyed monster kind of night
An unholy tempest tossed in the gravest of envy;

    We don't seem to get really stormy weather these days. At least here in Swansea. Perhaps its climate change. Lovely poem. Have you read any of my sonnets yet? (Report) Reply

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
