Email Poem | Today's Poetry


The wind rages around my keel today
Pushing me outward and pulling me back in
I feel I'm on a tidal wave
As I lurch about and grin

Though the boat is tied up quite securely
The storm is certainly gathering force
It bares its teeth and comes after me
Showing not the slightest hint of remorse

Inside I have battened down the hatches
And taken all possessions off the top shelf
All I can do is to sit tight
For fear of the rage of the swell

My windows are battered and pounded
I wish I could take to my bed
But the waves continue crashing high and above me
The noise is echoing in my head

There's no lull and the squall is ferocious
Pummelling throbs thrash louder on the roof
I'm scared as hell, I'll admit it
And that's the absolute truth
