Author's Note:

I will be posting a series of poem that I wrote a long time ago. Some of these I suspect I even wrote, back when I was in high school and college. I had to think many times before posting them here because I don't know anymore where they belong, or if they belong to poetry at all.


Shipwrecked in a life
that has no meaning,
my body, a boat
good for nothing;

a wide sea of pain
made me a dot,
my body, a boat,
is all I got.

Where is the shore
(to rest my weary soul),
someone's arms,
hands to console?

Shipwrecked in a life
that's all ocean no land,
my boat this body,
this man,
this island.

crystal face I kiss
tongue tastes like sweet cold rain
I fall into pond

Very well done. I think everyone feels shipwreaked at one time or another. It how we pull ourselves up. I like the last few line the best. Thanks keep them coming old or new always a pleasure to read

such reckless honesty and vulnerability here, really very touching, moving and poetically effective. beautiful.

If we don't look back on our past works we don't always realise just how sophisticated our creative minds have become through contant practice and work.

This is important to you because it was a starting place.
