A Voyage To Nowhere

A lifetime it seems I’ve sailed towards freedom But only in my dreams Does it ever really come. Stranded in this place Like a ship on a reef Held fast in the embrace Of heartache and grief. Unable to pull free From its iron tight grip Trapped in the misery Of my now sinking ship Desperation and anguish Washes over my face My hope starts to languish On my voyage to this Imaginary place. I’m a mariner who’s out of sort Traversing this turbulent sea Searching for the nearest port Where I can finally be free.
