Don’t Drown

Our friend-ship set sail across the trail of tears that ran down your face as I traced it back to the source
I lost direction on my way, and slightly veered off course
Our ship crashed into the promises we made
Breaking each one as mutual trust began to fade
Then we started to drift apart
But still tried to stay afloat in a sea of separation
That served us with random destinations
And in this vast ocean, a wave of tainted emotions led me to another woman’s heart
I was marooned by my lust, and every hope I ever fostered was crushed, but I knew that reconciliation was a must
Fate eventually brought us back together
It’s smooth sailing now that the storm has been weathered
But I’m uncertain as to whether it can stay that way forever

  1. WOW! every line just had something different that said alot about my current situation right now but really, I dont want fate to bring us back together in his case but in the other guys case, I will stay in his ship because in there, I found comfort.

    Lovely lovely lovey work….. all hands are up. Simplest thing I have read with so much interpretation in between. Gimme more of this!!

    1. @ufuomaotebele, thanks again and again ma’m. It’s really good to know that you could actually relate to the poem tho. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure to keep the good stuff coming per your request… no sweat. Thanks again.

  2. I love the idea expressed in between the lines but I believe the poem’s efficiency can be enhanced by making the poem divided in between short stanzas.

    Anyways, it was nice as @ufuomaotebele has affirmed.

  3. @innoalifa, thanks a lot for the comment, but I don’t know why I hardly take stanzas into consideration when I write poems. Maybe I’ll remember next time by GOD’S grace, thanks again.

    1. U’re welcome.
