Sailboat Memories

Updated on February 22, 2016

Sail Boat Memories

Their decks creak and moan
Sighing and knocking
Against waters once known

Many sail boats drifting
Heavy with memories
of you, of us, of what's missing

Unanchored and free
They drift and they clamber
Lost lambs in a vicious sea

You're the tide they fight
You're pulling and pushing
beneath a starless skys night

Sail boat memories will dance
Along your furious current
Their anchors stand no chance

Your force, it tears them apart
Sail boat memories clatter
Against the break of my heart

You're the gravity, the force
As boats start to swell
Filling with watery remorse

Carcasses of memories all that remain
You sunk them all with your waves
But you will never wash away their pain

      We all make typos Luna. They are easy to miss, but if we help each other when we notice's a win, win.

      Thank you for taking the time to read Jodah. And thank you for the welcome also :) As a newbie I will now be sure to watch out for those typos!

      A beautifully descriptive poem, Luna Blue. (The last line should read "But you will never WASH away their pain"). Welcome to HubPages.
