ABC

Gibber jabber
lost at  sea
all the voices of sailors past
call to me.
Come sail with us
the romance of the seven seas
pirates with cutlasses
come chase me.
Sand dunes of pure white
buried treasure
x marks the spot
as sirens sing a song of desire
luring senseless ones to their death.
Head in the clouds again
stories
dreams
dancing in my imagination
while teacher scolds me
‘Stop this piffling right now!
ABC and mathematics are key.
All the rest is nothing more
but a distraction to reality.’

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
