Deep


I sat down today
on the old shitey pier,

where all the stuff used
to come out,

I mean I sat there gazing deep
into the water,

then I thought I saw a mermaid,
and maybe even a giant crab
or a dead body,

the seaweed danced, it's long
brown hair,

part of me wanted to go down
there, part of me didn't,

the clouds looked heavy,

I was bored, but in love,

Earth the ocean is you
rolling about,

and I am just what,

this thing waiting, almost stranded,

words why don't you just circle
around me, protect my lack of self meaning,

God I need a shell to live down here,

or the thick skin you gave to many,

And ye know - I think I've done my
fair share of diving...

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
