Christopher Manes

(New Iberia, LA)

Untitled - Poem by Christopher Manes

I've a wrecked soul in my brain-
Confused and all alone-
And my heart a sunken ship
Since love no more the Captain owns
Me, my heart, and I-
Sailors to this sea-
And how the Moon's lost her glow
Drifting on this sea.
Untitled I've lived inside myself
so long I can't get out
buried myself in a tomb
of dreams, forgotten how to
speak, forgotten how to shout
spinning in this labyrinth
so long I can't get out.
