#21 – Imaginings

03/12/2021

something lies beyond those clouds,
at the end of the world i’m sure we’ll find out
something hovers on in outer space
would you ever like to visit that place?
I dreamt of floating in the ocean all alone
and my thoughts weighed on me like a stone
and with each breath, i strengthened to bear the load
till my minds eye, like a diamond glowed

A sailor at the port told me
that he only felt safe and sound
or in other words free
when it was just him, with no one around
in a boat, on the open sea
and that was the last I saw of him
I was told he succumbed to the siren’s hymn
fair enough I said,
imagining what thoughts had been in his head
