A truce with a pirate

Published August 8, 2012 by arabian roses

You seized  my  merry love letters

and turned  them into  inconsolable paper boats

Then summoned seagulls and

Declared yourself an emperor

Of conquerable words.

You stained your sculpted face  with

their  ethereal blue dew

to feel the softness of  a tortured heart,

to pass on  to your deserted veins

its sweetness,

and take you to untamed sea

your dauntless ships have never tasted  before

 the sea of homesickness .

  • What an outstanding poem. I wish I were the Pirate. But I could never built a paper boat out of the love letters. I guess, that’s why I am not a Pirate. However, This one is a great piece of writing. I really like.
