Lifeboat

Day by fading day

She slowly swallows me whole

An inescapable space of wasted moments

An epidemic of goodbyes

People pass by me seemingly stripped

Scarred by former seconds

Somewhere, everywhere, I look for you

I ponder endlessly where time flutters 

Memorializing my youth

But a glimpse is all I can bare

Reminiscing of memories I clench to

Eternally enduring

She kisses me, 

Convinces me of future embraces

And I stay afloat

For now

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
Our world
