Assault of an Endless Sea

In the winter there came knocking at my door
A voiceless fiend that would only point upward
To a ceiling veined with wood rot and rusted nails
Every night he was there, and every night I opened the door
Hoping he would point the way onward
To the places shrouded in twilight and whispered secrets
In the deep shrieking forests that comb coastlines
Ragged with the assault of an endless sea
Yet still the night fell somber and slow
On walls built to contain the madness
And I’m there, unmoving, waiting
Every night for the moment I can open the door
And see the withered hand pointing always to the sky
And never to the land I know I’m destined to conquer

  2. I have to say – your writing certainly deserves reaching such an exciting milestone. Even though I haven’t been around for long, I really enjoy reading your poems, and the way in which you manage to impart a sense of longing, particularly in this one. Well done!!!
