Lost at Sea

fixated eyes on unsail worthy lies;
black emptiness
which once held oceans

green greed algae
spreads across
stagnant thoughts
of ships that rot
while lost at sea 

seagulls flock
dip, peck,
dip, peck,
at what lies beneath
as salt winds blow 
what's left and found

baited line cast with 
hopes of a mermaid hook
that has leads of nothing more
than back to shore

drag your line -
time after time
time after time
time after time

    Thank you Sara, this is about a male who is lured to the deep water by a mermaid, and after finding himself lost at sea tries desparately to 'catch' her for directions back to shore - so, he cast his line over and over --- but, we all know that their are no mermaids.....cast your line --- time after time

    Interesting thoughts put to pen. I could come away with several different conclusions on this one. Welcome to soup. Keep writing. Sara
