Heart Wreck - Poem by aditya morey
Asail we were in the open sea on a voyage far and wild
my love her chum and i were there we ate we drank and smiled
to a land so far we set asail, my eyes set on my girl
fair she was with ale brown eyes and in her neck she wore a pearl
she and her chum were mates so old from when they were two and three
together they played together they grew they skinned their hearts and skinned their knees
ahead we sailed in open brine as the skies began to roar
darkness followed, fear crept in and foaming brine gushed the floor.
stray winds blew, the dark sky lit up in the storm's arrival
many a tempest such i fought many a tempest worse
but fear gripped my heart this time while i ponderd about its source
my love and her chum were gripped with fear as they fled under the deck
a sudden beat my heart did skip but mind in fear of wreck
wreck of ship or wreck of heart i still couldnt decide
i tried to sneak a look at them as i steered the vessel aside
beneath the wodden deck they sat telling stories of the past
and i was here in dual fear while trying to tame the mast
her chum and i neither friends nor foes exchanged an awkward glance
he looked at me he smiled at me i wondered of his plans
she was his friend for whom he cared the most he proudly acclaimed
my love was filth she deserved better at my sinking heart he blamed
time was fleeting as zeus struck, the sails then tore apart
the ship would wreck or would my love? would which one of both depart
'i love u ' she said i remembered as i closed my eyes
hand in had they stood before me much to my surprise
down was her head, proud was her chum to steal my love from me
down me to the ocean floor he would and then to land they would flee.
clear were his intentions to me long ago i decided to spy and scan
my love assured me that friends they were he looks at me like a guy like a man!
mirth i knew this evasion was but i decided to trust.
i thought i was an oaf doubting chums love with lust! !
'she chose me for i care for her' the tall man said
'but she loves me, dont u my love? ' i yelled, as my heart bled.
'not anymore ' she said 'u dont deserve me! he told me what im worth'
im a humourous mirth to u and u treat me like dirt! '
'ive always loved, i've always cared from the bottom of my heart! '
'i know sailor u did but i deserve better, leave us ashore and promise me that u will see me never'
saying this she held his hand tighter than she ever did mine
tumultuous thunder laughed at me as fear ran down my spine.
clod drops of water met my tears as i looked at the burning skies
he held her waist like i used to do, they kissed before my eyes.
'alright my love u have chosen ur life so i shall now choose mine'
i looked at her one last time and jumped into the foaming brine
as i fell behind she looked at me her new found love smiling with glory
i read her lips before ii hit the water she uttered 'im sorry'
as i sank below the surface peace was immence
i couldnt hear the roaring thunder, only the sound of silence
all memories old and new with her crossed beore my eyes 'i will always love you' i uttered as i look my last breath.
with a smile, with a pain i sank into the ocean's depth.
