I am the figurehead

Posted to Poetry




I am the figurehead of this tired ship not yet ready for sleep
I am the lifeblood, the pride and joy, of a world full of gnomes
Sagacious without rhyme
Ventriloquists of thoughts of sorrow, myopic dreams
Morose, neurotic, tragically beautiful
They hover on my ship
(The ship which I am the figurehead.)
(I am psycho romantic.)--(I am absolutely normal.)--(I am unreliable.)
Undone, the figure head of the ship
Cast away, must face the real world
