Abandon(ed) Ship

 

ABANDON(ED) SHIP

in my marrow
I feel it,
link after link
is loosed,
your heart
no longer anchored
to mine, as mine
sinks

in your wake
I’m left
to navigate
the choppy seas,
as I pitch,
unbalanced,
not knowing what
is in store

the deck
is cleared,
I stand alone;
no one beside me
at the rail, no one
at my stern;
no one waiting
at port

Inspired by The Sunday Whirl’s Prompt #68: marrow, link, store, anchor, wake, navigate, stern, deck, pitch, sink, rail, and port. Also posted for Day 32 at “100 Days of Summer” — click here to go to their Facebook page.
