Poem - The Anchor... after Nesrin Eruysal

Updated on April 28, 2012


and the anchor called...

follow me

tempted I moved to the edge......

familiar territory...

a dark sea foreboding

a calm blue water inviting

the ongoing dichotomy

the Y of my life, my death

floating there, beckoning

I descend, down, into a new realm

above the vague shapes of a past life, fragments, fading,

in this chosen death I am slave and master

face to face with a past and a beginning

another easy way out, oh to jump again...

into the swirling blue of tomorrow,

tomorrow....

      Xtasis, thanks, I suppose because I have never studied writing I have developed my own style.. I have over 1000 poems now and so perhaps like a sword you gain more control over it the more you wield it... but always it is lovely to go back and make some little change, make a line or a word that little bit better.. Thank very much Drax.. :-)
