Shipwrecked - Poem by Adryan Rotica

no wind will set
these sails
in motion

as white water kisses
tease me

I sit idle

waiting

while currents pass

and stillness stirs.....

...time at sea knows

I will never get
to you

the closest
I will be
will be
to whisper
I love you's
into a cruel sea

as love
and time
wash away.

    What is so lovely about this poem is that there is so much emotion between every word and line. There is a lot of suspense and this suspense postpones the different meanings to the reader - for those who see that of course. It's like a story in which each segment is revealed piece by piece. The first three lines introduce the reader to a hopelessness that outlasts the whole poem. The allusions to a ship sailing on the sea is too very beautiful! I love it! (Report) Reply
