Neptune

I long to take my sorrows

And write them in the sky

To hang there in remembrance

Of salty sea blue eyes

 

My trespasses are weighing,

My madness on display

Another victim falling

To my storm of disarray

 

My heart is beating shallow,

Battered and abused

All of my own doing,

The bleeding and the bruise

 

Yet surely burns the fire

That flickered on the edge

The slowly dying ember

That pushed me to the ledge

 

My soul’s a raging tempest,

My ship’s been hurled and tossed

Yet it cuts the waves with wisdom

When it seems that all is lost

 

So patient in my cabin

Will I navigate my course

And stay the path of passion

And steer with no remorse.
