Awww, Kim, I love your input! I find it really useful, and I'm not just saying that. I guess I'm just stuck in my ways.
Drifting On An Empty Ocean
Feel the water rock
The sodden boards beneath my knees
As I hold them together,
Got to keep it together.
I'm drifting on an empty ocean,
And I can see the seagulls circling.
Tired and broken,
Don't know if I'll survive the night.
I think back to that day,
A lifetime ago,
When I severed my moorings
And escaped to the empty sea.
The lonely sea.
Never thought I'd miss those days
When I was just a slave,
But out here I'm nothing.
I'm just drifting aimlessly,
Longing for a glimpse of land,
Knowing it's no use.
The water lifts me, lulls me,
Lets me fall in endless loops,
And I know I'll drift forever,
Longing to sink and be done.

He Lemonrabbit, another fine poem, I see. I particularly like the way you effortlessly slip into a little note-to-self line 'got to keep it together' before continuing with the poem.
Are you going to be joining us over on Bitesize? I'd hate for you to be left behind - not least because I'd seriously miss your work!

Hmmmm, I guess. I started out there, actually, a long, long, loooong time ago. It kept telling me to come here, but I wasn't sure it was for me. The irony, huh? But I'll miss everyone if I don't, so, yeah. And woohoo! I achieved my goal and made it to two pages! Pointless, I know, but I feel all smug now. ^^ I suppose I'd best go introduce myself, huh?

I definitely do see the irony! But sadly Blast does have to go, and at least this way we all stay together. See you over there!
