I sit upon the broken shelf

And watch the world unravel itself

While crooks and demons hunt me down

They can't reach, and it's too silent to hear a sound

The ship is sailing far too east

And the crew is dancing on their feet

While Captain is snarling orders

The ship approaches southern boarders

The clouds are enveloping me now

A single teardrop below mermaid's brow

The downpour's clearly begun

I've found every shipmate undone

And if mother would show all mercy

I'd claim this- my voyage- unworthy

I will arrive on land with earthly gifts

But, as I look now that dream's adrift

We're sailing too close- grazing the cliffs

As the ship is sinking I hum a myth

For I had never been so unbearably near

To the crooks and the demons who were once too far away to hear

Hiya beautiful people! So, this is a poem about a pirate, it's basically one big metaphor! So just go ahead, and sink yourself into it.
