Found Poem

Both remained suspended, motionless;
The storm began to subside
But still the sea was disturbed.
“Come! Come courage!”
As I said it, I knew it was a naïve hope.
Who are you if you lose your favorite person?
A sheer drop, black and faceless
It was a bleak, harsh view, 
the sea and the rock unrelieved by any tree or sweep of grass or sand.
Will we ever meet again?
I will sail into the future on mystery’s wings 
and I will not look back.

    :) I guess that I should describe what found poem means! A "found poem" is a specific type of poem where you use sentences from other author's books and writings. I used sentences from Harry Potter 6, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, and Love Stargirl to mold together a poem, thus the name "found."

    Form is free verse, the title does not make sense to me? I enjoyed the interjection of dialogue! Light & Love
