>An ancient prayer…

Tuesday, February 2, 2010 . 12 comments . Posted in General


The gust fell upon the ferryboat
For it naively sank to the moon, &
His love stood awake of his return, &
She sang a song to the blue skies

O Lord, Guard my guardian
For his craft is full of Gold
Send him a guardian angel
For us to live in love forever

The dark holes poured packed
For its fiery wrecked the yacht, &
the gale rushed upon the waves, &
pushed him away from the craft

O Lord, Guard my guardian
For his craft is full of Gold…
Make his sail smooth & sane
For us to live in eternal ecstasy

And whilst she recites the mantra,
ferry full of Gold sank to the west, &
Crossed the silver sea in vain, &
Went astray with all the glitzy gold…

    >nice poem..kinda dark huh..? i love the figurative speech you used..

    and the ending is nice..pretty ironic of what the woman was praying for..maybe coz she's so selfish abut the gold..:3
