Ghost Of Light House

I am a nomad
of thousand unsettled
dreams.
a leaning
tower of tortoises
approaching to my shore
to lay their
eggs of pain and
prickles.
a seagull
fetched her
paranoiac food
from my bleeding
liver .
let me sleep on the
seabed ,
where the eternal
ancient mariners
adorning a red carpet
with their
ageless crabs and
the scent of dead
girl friends.
now could see
That ghost of light house
drinking moon light
from the waving
breasts of
white ocean

The ghost that has no soul or too many souls. The imagery is amazing, so difficult to put such thoughts in words.
