Ferry Me, Love (NaPoWriMo)

I’m skating in at nearly the eleventh hour to hopefully fulfill NaPoWriMo’s optional prompt, which speaks to grief, loss, love… Ennle


Ferry me, in your arms, Love

Cradled across Time, opal-starred

Ocean…where you are forever.

Take me back to childhood’s

Naïve belief that dreams were

More real than imagined possibles

Flights of whimsy fanciful…not

Slated to only come true for

Someone smarter, an exotic

Gilt-edged rose; or one not broken

Too soon to untwist brain’s bent

Wires and limbs of heart, their pale

Weak marrow diseased.

Ferry me, in your arms, to a place

Where you’d love me without

Question, second thought as to folly

Or wisdom, others’ opinions…

Because you knew your own mind

Captained your ship to success, against

Critic’s sharp (petty, envious) waves…

Because the 30 years’ span, differences

Between your bright-lights world, mine

Would disappear, mere movie mist…

The sky is prickled with gemstone’s fire

Ferry me, my Love…
