Sink Your Sorrows


Look into a mirror
For there are your sorrows.
Align another one
And yes your Sorrows are compounded-
But it is artificial
As the pulse of your heart on your breath.

Sink your Sorrows through that mirror of the sea's surface,
Aligning in wave after wave
Of the moon's captivity,
And let the tides become your heart,
And the seabreeze your breath.
Sink your sorrows into the sea.

    This is one of my favourite poems of yours. Sometimes it's nice to forget what's happening in ours lives, and just breath, and live in the moment. (Report) Reply
