Poetry by Sam



We’re not so much like passing ships at night-

more like ships that have embarked together

over a massive ocean, on a long,

uncertain course. We may be dragged apart

at any moment- pulled or swept away

by overwhelming winds, or hidden currents,

from each other- and there’s times we dip

or bob and find ourselves beyond the other’s

sight- but so far whenever that’s happened

waves have eventually calmed- storms pass-

and the sun’s appeared and I’ve seen you, and your

bold, bright sails, defiant in the sky-

and I was only more determined that we’d find

the other side- that I won’t lose you.
