Adrift - Poem by Meredith Fahey

I remain adrift,
Floating in the waters of life.
Alone, staring up into the milky
Black darkness, speckled with gold
The map of everywhere,
The guide to nowhere
If I drift long enough
Will I dissolve in this quiet infinity?
Will it hurt?
I am alone in my skin,
In the vast population of thoughts
Swimming in my head.
There is only one thought
That rings solid.
I am alone.
I climb aboard this dark notion,
And wait.
For what? For land? A rescue boat?
A shark?
I do not know
That is why I remain
