Hope

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

I love playing badminton above all else. I also really love water - swimming, soaking in a hottub, spending hours in a steam room or doing polar bear swims. I used to be really into wilderness survival & kayaking, but now I enjoy the finer things in life, like relaxation, comforts, spas, riches and anything pleasant. Poetry and song writing is just how I express myself and cope with life. I have a history of mental illness, eating disorders and addiction, plus I was a cancer survivor. Spirituality and healthy living is really important in my 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.
