Part of this poem,

"...i be writin an singin
on my crazy ship of dreams
nobody hear the madness
of my de looooo si on alllll screams"

has been running around in my head the past several days. Today, the rest of the poem gelled. And so, I write.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~
floatin on a sea of fear
on my crazy ship of dreams
was the captain of my fate
i was on my own it seems
waves were reachin thirty feet
on my crazy ship of dreams
i felt small and overwhelmed
i'd be dashed to smithereens
stores of hope fell overboard
on my crazy ship of dreams
only thing left was my pen
an my journal pages clean
i be writin an singin
on my crazy ship of dreams
nobody heard the madness
of my de loooooo si on alllll screams
the sun be so burnin hot
on my crazy ship of dreams
i seen some things on that day
'god' i begged 'please intervene'
he heard my desperate cry
from my crazy ship of dreams
he breathed life into my words
a poet's worth was redeemed

Definitely agree with Jude... dreams are in fact our only life-saver, and life-giver... and, oh, well... sanity grasped when all else is maddeningly swerving, like this not at all "crazy" ship! :0)
Delightful poem, dear friend! :0)

I think a thunderstorm while sailing would have been something that you could have REALLY gotten a few words out of...if you would have come out from under your berth in your cabin...LOL! You keep writin' em, and I will keep readin' em....Ed

Maybe you needed to chuck Jonah overboard. Give him a whale of a time.

This would make one heck of a good R&B song...has a definite beat to it. Excellent writing; but those 30 foot waves don't sound too fun...glad you made it back in one piece, sealegs and all! LOL Very well done; brava!

We all need a crazy ship of dreams... to sharpen our wit and to re-invent things, which others see as usual...
