#227 Stand And Stare
On auto drive I climb spiral stairs,
Grasping the guardrail as I go.
Through small windows I see the glares
Of the boat’s fading glow.
I see fierce tides rise and crash,
Tossing the boat with ease.
I see rain pour and lightning flash
Within a hurricane breeze.
Still I keep moving, higher and higher,
My brain out running my feet.
Urgently trying to kindle the fire
With swift steps and rapid heartbeat.
The boat shrinks every time I look,
The light continues to dim.
Just like a fish caught on a hook,
It’s much too late to ...
#356 The Wall
Much like I was, she was scarred
And searching for repair.
Love had severely burnt and charred
Our hearts within its flare.
She found comfort in gentle arms,
I found solitude and poise.
She was a sucker for my charms,
I was enthralled by her ploys.
