~barnacle~

Poem By Sinnaminsun Sinnaminsun

This calming river, a surface like glass
where deeper below emotions surpass
in longing for something more...

Looking down the narrow way
as I pull back on my sails,
I sense my soul is stiring
and growing somewhat pale.

This restlessness and cowardice
to want but never venture out,
Keeps me drifting in shallow waters
drowning in pools of doubt.

Those harbored souls seem skeletal now
as I pass slowly through,
Just like me they sailed within
Their stay long overdue.

This felt like boating on the river Styx. Like you say, we all must cross it some day.

~a Love~

As sun will pierce, the white of snow will melt,
Though winter slain the green of blades to brown.
Can love endure without a chilling welt?
To warm within and melt all ice surround.

~hell On Earth~

Here is your Hell...
no purgatory lay waiting.
Do you feel it in your burning veins,
within your corroded heart long filled with hate...

~deepest Blue~

Love comes silent.
Your shadow's close,
yet not near enough.
Falling deep your sighs,

~to Those~

To those who lay broken
and those without a voice,
To those who have fallen
and those without a choice.

~dry~

Absent, is the feeling
though it's growing deep within,
While dreams are up for waking
this day has reached an end.
