Millions of Messages
Foreword: I'm not entirely sure what this piece is about other than I wrote it following a counselling session. Subconscious emotions brought to the surface? Who knows?
Adventure of a lifetime
Shall I embark on one?
Just to find a lifeline?
Face towards the sun
Set sail above the depths of life
Hit the rocks of another tomorrow
Stranded on the island beach of strife
Waves salty taste of tears and sorrow
I write my stories in the sand
Ocean tide rolls to wash away
Illegible words I don't understand
Words of meaning hard to say
Textured and rough, patterned and mottled
Castaway feelings discarded
Millions of messages in millions of bottles
Out of sight, lost
Bottles broken open
Washed up on many a distant shore
Messages read by you I know
I'm not alone anymore
