Waves by Jackie Biggs

I am not a silent poet

to fall

sink

drift

down

..

to escape what is

above

to know what is lost

is untouchable

..

to sense

ghosts swimming

in a veiled

shadow of fears

..

to breathe

water

taste salt

choke

..

to know darkness

to stifle

in a sea of tears –

to drown

travelling by Reuben Woolley

I am not a silent poet

not here

i´ve faded

into shade ……… black-holing

under waters

i’m bleeding myself alive

again

…………. grasping

for this new throat

will breathe me back

from here ………i am not seen

……

………….& i’ll sing

the new figures

these flights of leather

faces / salt survivors

i shall remember

hands

lost

……..falling

from splinters

..

soon……..i say

a sun

in a new sky

& i shall sleep
