Poetry

when nobody reads

I sent out notes in bottles

to cast upon the sea

like a child throwing rocks into water

to see the ripples that they make

they were the companions of my solitude

I abandoned them with a heavy heart

for in them I abandoned myself

I hoped they travelled far and wide

bravely across the waves

I hoped the bottles could contain

all the secrets that they hid

 

the journey had been hard

on my little island

hungry and alone

I waited for a stranger

I waited for a reader

someone with which to share

my sorrow

my delight

my innermost fight

someone to say myself

 

the flowers bloomed and fell

the sky lightened and darkened

I thought of the creatures of silence

and became one myself

I waited for a stranger

I waited for a reader

and I am waiting still
