As rust falls from the anchor


As rust falls from the anchor Where do sandcastles go when the tide engulfs the view and lonely shorelines crest in tear drops beneath white capped dream chasers, foam laced erasers combing sanded wishes, taking towers in the water's rage as moats become minor indentations on a beach bathed in the moon light, moving gleams in metronome tickling as our hearts wash out to sea drowning in the depths of forbidden love and with my final breath, salt water drenched I profess that forbidden or not, I love you and the lighthouse shines its orbiting light as I go under for the last time happy in my declaration as rust falls from the anchor and I wait until we meet again, on the island of meant to be

I do love this..Chris..It has so many layers..The foam erasers that wash sandcastles away bring despair..The last breath brings tragedy..The rusted anchor makes me think of someone stucked somewhere for a long time..The declaration of love through the last breath..brings so much emotion and dtermination of someone that know what He wants..The island brings solitude..but the island brings even a place of romance where two can be.Forbidden Love...brings questions...Exceptional.Deserves a fave.

I LOVE to write like you do often too, with minimal to no interpunction. Sometimes people point out to me that I should, but I do it for a special effect, like you do here. I love it.

Hey Darren, I think we should just write what we feel, however we feel. In my opinion, there are no rules in poetry unless you are writing to a specific form. Thank you so much for your kindness.

WoW! Chris, The imagery was so good in this dark yet beautiful write. It was so sad. I fetl like it was a Romeo and Juliette type of write.I saw too young lovers who were forbidden to love, give their lives in sea. I may be way off course but that's what I got. I'm with Rick (minus giving up balls) what I wouldn't give to be able to write like this. Excellent job. A without a doubt seven:-) Alexis
