Bay Water

Posted on Updated on


In the end
If it is my tears that I will have to swim through
Choked by half-drowning and a memory of you
Far away, like the Liberty
Far away – making love

I may close my eyes
And let myself go and tell myself that for me
Life will mean no more. May I survive and go on,
May I pick up and crawl. Life will have meaning
When meaning deprives life of all.

Till then, I wait
With life on my side.

    Beautiful. She/he is lucky that you have no plans to be a stalker.

    Yes, don’t stalk. Hang yourself, much more romantic. And then I will write a poem about you hanging yourself.

    This one is beautiful. Short, sweet, and to the point too.

    My favorite line: “Life will have meaning
    When meaning deprives life of all.”

    Great job!
