Posted in Life and After


Been alone for long,

ever since the storm

blinded me,

and pitched me

against the rocks

too many times to count.

Waves who had

caressed me

left me behind to die

away from the sea.

My home now

a dream to me,

as I lay abandoned

by those who had

once cared

because now

I serve no purpose.

My heart’s cold,

I am now a ghost

they are unable to see.
