Battered Soul on Stranded Atoll

Barren atoll of the beached, stranded soul Jilted psyche cornered on dark, rocky knoll Wavering compass points to ever drifting pole Listless anchor in choppy waters does troll Tumultuous portents all fleeting hopes parole Overcast skies, tomorrow's outlook even more droll Boisterous waves of anguish crash on lifeless shoal Brackish foam of revulsion o'er vexed mind does roll Briny mist, dense fog o'er searching spirit does scroll Tempest of sorrow blows increasing bleak toll The deafening thunder my quivering nerves patrol Torrents of despair my darker instincts do cajole Weary sojourner paying the dues toilsome waves dole Together with addled conscience on desolate strand stroll
