A Stranded Voyager

am drawn to tragedies of others
as a moth flies into the fire
just to be in the eye of the storm
so, I can forget my own  
and pretend to care
am a voyager stranded in a boat
and pretending that
the sea is calm and warm
the sail is set to the sunset
the sun will shine brightly
over my dark clouds…
hoping they will just disappear
without a blow
just by ignoring
I know it’s not true
soon I will meet the storm
twisted inside my selfish desires
one day…
it will hit me in my base
collapsing on my head
will I stand after…?
I let the sea decide

as a submission to the comp It's a KNOCKOUT
