Drifting

By : Damien Knight
I have drifted
Slowly for so long
On my pain
That I have forgotten
Even how to write
Poetry anymore

I have suffered
Miserably that
I have forgotten
How to feel joy
The warmth
Of love

Toss the anchor
Into the stormy
Seas of pain
Cast with your hands
The sails
Tied up

Redirect the
Ship for
Rainbow skies
And cease drifting
On unpoetic
Oceans of sorrow

Pick up the pen
That is your helm
And stear your ship
Direct the rudder
To push sorrow behind
And reach for love

Write the words
And take moor
Secure it to
The dock of
Stability
And regain security

I Stopped drifting
And began writing
And once again
Picked up the pen
To continue my rhymes
And observations
