Adrift Upon A Makeshift Raft


 


There are not enough words


For me to display, ones that


Just might make you see


That there is no hope for me.


Time creeps by, a staggaring pace


That will not cease.  Lethargic is


Mine soul which lingers much


Too long upon memories of


Long ago.


 


Is love truly lost, cast aside


Or to the winds?  Life is a


Terrible play in which we take


Our acts as they come.  Tragic,


Is love, as it is lost upon


The white capped waves of sorrow.


Drift, I do now, upon a makeshift


Raft that was cast asail so long ago.


Vuneralble is mine soul as thy, by


Some mistake of chance, passes


My way on this endless, vast ocean


Of life.


 


Set mine soul free, to walk


The waves with thee, let me


See another day give birth


To yet another day after that.


I can see land upon the horizon,


There!  Can you see it too?


Or is this a mirage, a trick of the light


Upon mine eyes?


Are you the very same, a shadow


That dances in the flickering of


Candlelight as I read at night?


Inspiration hits me at the most


Unusual times, leaving me to wonder


And to cry, as life shows me the


Harsh realities of love.


(c) 2003 A Riddle
