Mystery Island(The Cold Dark Night Version) - Poem by Russell Sivey

In the darkened docks
Of a north-eastern town
The frigid coast moves
Against the dimmed boat
Silently rocking by the black waves
A shadow approaches
Living a dark life
The boat doesn’t agree
To a simple boarding
One fails to get on
Brushed onto the water’s edge
Getting frozenly wet
Pain subdued by the coldness
Trying again respectfully
Success the honorable retry
Once one boards, surprises abound
The frozen boat
Has no life heat
There’s no chance
To make it to mystery island
One frowns vehemently
And must disembark with a handicap
Off the dismal boat one regrettably goes
Somehow defying the odds
Of meeting the frozen waves
The darkness envelopes this one
And one silently escapes
In the cold night air…
