A ship with
no lighthouse
Dead
in the water
You’ve decided
to shine your
light
elsewhere
I’m jealous
of the Captain
that you guide home

Misguided
until further notice
The sharks
are coming
And I’m running
out
of ideas

Do you know
who you’re bringing
ashore?
All you see
are sails
A siren
leading you
to the rocky,
attractive landing

Brace yourself
for the worst
Crash landing
or smooth sailing
The forecast
is unclear
fear it
or be its
vicitim

If you need
me
I’ll be
here
Floating aimlessly
Until I find
another
lighthouse

As always you did very well. btw. Never float aimlessly for anything. You guide your boat no one else does. :) papas words of wisdom strike again

Bah you’ve written loads since I was last here! I’ve got some serious catching up to do!
This is beautiful by the way. I love the way you’ve captured the vulnerability implied by loneliness, as opposed to just loneliness, if that makes sense?
Hope you’re well lovely! x

I disagree with Papa… you must float aimlessly or you’ll never run into the beautiful accidents of life. The safe harbor is for those who pay too much attention to where they’re going and never crash. Let someone else take hold of the reigns! Love and give, for your story belongs to everyone else as well. Pseudonym
