Treasure Island

Chris G. Vaillancourt

(April 5,1959 / Canada)

And I Drift


I have scratched the loneliness
that never knows its path
Bright as black
I flowed into its waters
and let the waves sift me
through the tunnels of despair
I have danced with abandon
in the poverty of desire
I have entered and left
the serenity of glass chills
echoing in my heart
I rode the battlements
of eternity in a second's
glance at lost
Falling, yearning,
grasping for something
that was glowing
but out of my sight.
I have dropped the
zeal of a rebel
into the ice cream of
a mind, and I drift,
and I drift,
and I drift.........

    A beautiful write, don't we all drift away from reality, from our values, even from life itself... You have opened the door leading to deep thoughts, it's up to each and every one to enter or to walk away! (Report) Reply

    I love this...
    especially the ending...
    like a pendulum...making my mind drift away..smile
