Sinking ships

You struck the match
then burned the ship
and jumped to save yourself

through a burnt orange haze of golden waves
I found some driftwood
and clung

clung
clung


now May has come
and December
circling through time

and now you
casually rememberto inquire

if I survived......

and then you clutch my hand
and ask
could I be a good girl and understand?

you had to save yourself
save yourself
save yourself

that ...is... just the way it works

Abhay K,

Hey, Thanks for checking out my poetry. Romance? hmmm. Everything I write romantic ends on a depressing note these days. I will post one and you can see what I mean.
