Sea Of Sorrows

Sea Of Sorrows short poem

Photo by pasotraspaso

These deep dark sorrows come in waves
So hard to stay afloat
They drag me under day by day
Keep praying for a boat

I struggle for one breath of air
As I begin to sink
Left with this bittersweet despair
My mind ceases to think

But then I wake upon the sand
So thankful for my life
Until I see I’m alone in this land
Now all I can do is survive

Poetic truth !

That’s a cool poem. I love the bittersweet despair, tho’ I don’t fully understand at present. I think you’ll survive, I’m sure you’re a survivor, just like Alexander Selkirk. In fact you should read William Cowper’s excellent poem the Solitude of Alexander Selkirk, I’m sure you must be familiar with a line or two of it if not the entire poem. .

Thumbs up to the author.
It was a heartwarming poem.
I can feel how much you struggle to ease the pain, but the journey still lives on.
Keep on writing.

NIce poem. I like the way it flows and how the rhymes come naturally. I did expect the last stanza to represent hope and the last 2 lines opposed that thought of the first two lines. Still, it’s realistic.

Sea Monkeys

Sea Monkeys short poem

Everything we know, or think we know, comes from an infinitesimal speck of time and space. “Important” people, just random specks of insignificance. Nothing more than Sea Monkeys, fluttering around Sea Monkey world. Everything spoken as truth only reinforces ignorance.
