Driftwood - An Original Poem

The lights fade. Sunrise, Sunset... As the tidal flows ebb. I lie here choking On your salty waters Still hard and smooth to the surface But soft at the core Washed out and washed up As everyone expected me to be. It's like the tsunami Floating on subtle signs - The ones that the tourists never see It's been only to your benefit - These machines. Please say goodbye and let me go Set me adrift out to sea.

This is a very good poem! You say it's an original. Did you write it? You did a good job. Thank you for sharing it with us. I remember daddy had a piece of driftwood he kept for a long time. I don't know whatever happened to it and I don't know where he got it, either, lol. Kathy.

Thank you! Yes, I wrote it. One of my medications sometimes causes strange nightmares. I'd actually had a dream about a music video "The Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance... and that instead of the man dying in the video that it was me, fading in and out.
