the past is

the fabled storm
that touches Poseidon’s
trident is soft, yet electric
and the last ship that has sailed
rides atop the roars
of the Sea God,
hours and days lost
in their currents
and while I know
the radiant wind pushing
against the mast
blows only one direction
I can’t help but look back
a single tear caresses
and escapes my shoulder
I miss you
I miss you still
but the last ship that has sailed
rides atop the roars of the Sea God
hours and hours and days lost
in a different tomorrow

    The ship has sailed only to return
    only to follow the ocean currents of the heart
    It sailed only to be returned by a storm of realization

    That all along the destination it was meant to sail to had already been reached,
    but the mist and fog that surrounded the ship and its captain blinded him from seeing that the ship was already where it was meant to be
    floating on a sea of peace and harmony

    Now the ship sails around the sea like a stray fish
    not knowing where it is and what is but that it just is
