A Sailor's Tale

Post by audiofool » Sat May 13, 2017 10:50 pm

I admit I'm flattered
I sincerely doubt you're sane
you take me at my worst
and never do complain

we met under conditions
far from the ideal
intentions and emotions mixed
flavor the taste of real

swapping stories
of betrayal and woe
from anxiety to liberty
how much does she know?

kicking up excitement
within my fevered wake
the rush to headquarters
diving in a cement lake

beside the restful water
like some pastoral scene
I'm swimming in your tide pool
skimming your magazine

swapping stories
sprinkled with sailors' salt
from here to obscure
and without finding fault

we met under conditions
favored by sightless fate
the wheel spins on forever
the gold is worth its weight

slightly less enthusiastic
when the seasons turn
bridges lie between us
the fire that slowly burns.
