I have no faith left

It’s gone

Just trying to survive this crashing dawn


When the sun comes up

I’ll be gone

With no one by my side, I’ll be moving on


Just the last man left

They’re all gone

Trying to survive without anything to count on


I’ve never lived a life

There’s no town

When every person never comes around


I’ve never had a wife

Lost at sea

I’ve always had to live without intimacy


I could kiss the knife

To be free

Or go swimming for a lonely Selkie

But I might drown in my misery

Trying to solve the mystery


Every hermit knows

On the sea

You lose your identity


I’m just a lonely seer

I see them

Yet when they see the flower they only see the stem

I’m so ugly but in my heart lies a very precious gem


They deserted me here

They chose

To cast me out into the shadows


Every hope disappears

Every hermit knows

What it’s like

When no passing ship ever slows


I’m not sure if these waves will ever carry me home

I just wait

For my body to decompose


Floating in seaweed somewhere nobody knows

I just wait

I’m not sure if in life love ever grows


I’ll just wait and see where this current goes

I’m so

jaded but I don’t need to believe in order to have hope

Maybe the sea

Will swallow me like a cruel envelope

Maybe I’ll find a ship and they’ll throw me a rope

Poetry and song writing is just how I express myself and cope with life. My art and novel writing is something I enjoy sometimes but not all times. Some people tell me I should sell it but it's just a hobby. You are more than welcome to support me if you would like.
