Lost at Sea

Written by: regina branham

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
