Barge of the Blind
As raindrops merged with foaming waves,
aboard the Barge of the Blind I sailed,
toward ragged wraiths on skyline’s haze,
in search of any holy grail.
As shadows twitching in the night,
or snowflakes drifting in the frost,
a candle drowned in sunbeams bright,
on a barren ocean I was lost.
Soon I smashed upon jagged blades,
to drift as flotsam through debris,
for as captain with my barge I stayed,
and now I melt into the sea.
