Demon Seas, Part 7 - Poem by Captain Cur

The storm has shifted,
the winds violence quickly lessens,
in its place a deep fog settles
with profound unanswered questions.

In blindness and dread
a man clearly sees his nature,
deciphering the dark symbols
of his callous nomenclature,

written is his tiny book
with fawning penmanship,
rehearsing his life story
as the lies form on his lips.

Our ship slowly drifts
and my breathing thick and weighted,
remembering those eyes,
in which I was feared and hated.

In my eyes,
what did my men's stares
intuitively divine?
Do they deem me courageous,
or lacking moral spine?

Do they see the poisoned seed
of where my viciousness has led,
watered by the balmy springs
where innocence has bled?

Do they see my captive soul
that's carved from hardened ice
shaped like a canine beast
that wears the mange of life;

shattered into deadly shards
that snarls and rips apart
anyone who dares to strip
the hatred from my heart?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Translator notes: Parts 7 and 8 are the completion of the Demon Seas series. Although these entries were written later in the Captains life, I felt the honesty and insight portrayed in these verses would be of value to the reader. I can guarantee, more adventures will follow.
