The Watch Tower

A man stood alone,
Trying to gaze past the surface of the seas.
He could no longer see himself,
through the looking glass he seeked.

Instead the reflection of the dancing stars,
put him in a daze,
As he looked up to catch her drifting,
Her eyes faded despite the moonlights ways.

A tear held the last remaining glow,
To show her smile.
He watched it as it seemed to shimmer as it fell.
She brought a light to him,
A light that seemed to lift his heart.

But now as she sailed away,
over waves of his heartbreak,

He dropped to his knees,
Damned the seas!
and fell apart.

Well written! applause
wow, you have something here...thumbs up thumbs up
Magical quality. Deep, deep......sad flower
He could no longer see himself,
through the looking glass he seeked.

And seek you did
you are on your way,
beautiful, many different hues shine through that looking glass
never stop seeking
