Driftwood

Standard

The light’s gone out, I doubt what’s right.
A rage unknown my only light
That shines a beacon on this day.
This feeling’s never gone away.
But feeling’s one thing, knowing, more:
Merely driftwood upon the shore
Providing shelter as and when.
Come daylight, discarded again.
Soaked through seawater, I burn green,
A flame like you have never seen.
A light of clarity so tall
You’ll wonder, was it worth it all?
But it’s too late, I cannot stay
Where I’m unwanted, not one more day.
I’ll burn through you like you’ve burnt me
Then waves will crash; I’m back at sea
Cast aside. Drifting along
Perhaps nowhere’s where I belong.
