Tied To The Mast (standard:poetry, 116 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Aug 02 2011Views/Reads: 1698/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Writing through some tough times in my life... metaphorically put, I've heard the song of the sirens.

Don't listen to the song 

They'll have you thinking wrong 

Just go your way 

And never say 

You gave in to the throng 

I lift my pen to write 

But cannot stand the sight 

The words a mess 

I did my best 

But can't tell right from wrong 

The thing that I must do 

Is ask you to be true 

And tie me to 

In every hue 

The mast I must pursue 

Now turn my head away 

And let the music play 

I do not care 

I told you where 

I've nothing left to say 

I've written much the time 

Through sirens shrieking rhyme 

Reprove me if 

I break these bonds 

That hold me so entwine
