Romance….


…is not for me.

 

That ship sailed all pack’t with treasures

Years ago

 

We were supposed to buy and sell and trade

That ship would return some day with more

 

Storms sank it deep

 

Somewhere of the straits of Desire

Enemy

Flaming Arrows set it afire

 

It sank

 

With it sank every hope and dream

Sank into depths where only gold survives

And ghostly creatures made of light

Floating in darkness

Silent witnesses to what was long ago

 

Sometimes divers come to try

To take a golden bit and save it

Some get one coin

Some get two

Then the sands shift over a thin crust

They have to rise before they die

Not too fast

 

Too fast causes pain

 

The treasure does not miss one coin

It does not care

Still it is buried there

Somewhere

Entrenched deep in the ocean of my heart
