High Tides

A high tide, that's all I want.
A violent wind, filled with whispers.
Take me, against my thoughts and ropes,
That I may wreck on your shores and foolishly hope.

It's this poor man's rum, I think,
That builds in me these crazy thoughts.
Night in, night out, it has me broke
Inside these salted halls, black, crooked and choked.

Against all reason I do love,
Your face upon a moon this night.
Come nymph, and dance with me this art,
The drunken song I sing, the secret in my heart.

Meet the author

Cristian Orellana In search of sanity and peace. I write short poems, they give me solace and happiness. Rather dark and cryptic, I do hope they connect with someone. I am an amateur writer, and I hope to improve the more I write and learn. Thank you for reading. I also do some instagraming, look for me as @chirimantecman.
