The Anchor

I once loved an anchor one of those that sails on skin one of those that has a rowing heart and pelting blood within One of those who blows mussel covered kisses one of those that tells mermaids salty lies one of those who'll go down with rum and shackles the day he finally dies. © Gry W Christensen

Hi Debbie, Thank you very much! This is written to a good friend as an inside joke :)..................not a form I normally work with. I am originally from Scandinavia and we have a lot of irony, sarcasm, "dark" humour over there.
