To be lost at sea in a cold and lonely dark….
Drawn down into the icy, dark deep
Engulfed within the bosom Of a cold, crushing sleep Feel the cold embrace A chilling kiss to your face
See the light from above
Fade slowly from view From the dawn of the day From the morning dew As the writhing waters welcome you To their icy womb A desolate tomb
And as the colour fades
And the night grows deep As you silently slip Into that long dark sleep
As you leave behind
A life you once knew A cold truth hits you Through and through
To fight is futile
There is no release To accept, to welcome To embrace the peace
A shuddering sigh
As the cold fills your core You surrender yourself To this cold hearted whore
And the seas roll on
In their solemn advance Any and all who care to challenge Or chance
For the cruel icy depths
Are alive with lost souls A cold crushing tomb The buoys bell now tolls. Innovative thoughts Imagination Earnest poems Truth

One the very first day we’re born into a world, where there’s a chance to dream for every boy and girl. Starting off young the mind becomes full on what to be, from becoming a fireman to the next star
One night I had an uneasy dream I was at Mother’s Wake A woman entered the viewing room I wanted to scream It was my Deceased Mother Followed by her Dead Sister Stella A third woman without a face Carried
