Last night I said goodbye,

In the nicest possible way,

To a man I never quite met,

But loved so anyway.

Now I am lost at sea,

Adrift in the ocean

between you and me.

There is water everywhere,

It pools in my eyes,

Makes my skin hard to wear.

My moorings slipped away,

No harbor for me,

No sheltering bay.

Searching for driftwood to keep me afloat

In this vast expanse of loneliness.

You were my lifeboat.

If my dreams don’t lead to your arms,

Our tenuous link severed,

your love no longer keeping me from harm,

There is no point in dreaming,

Of waves gleaming,

Of sunlight beaming,

lost in the depths of your watery home,

where you rule your realm and made me your own.

Spread the love

Bianca M Schwarz

Bianca M Schwarz was born in Germany, spent her formative years in London, has a US passport and considers herself a world citizen. She lives in Los Angeles because that's where they make movies and she used to work on them. She writes novels because that's kind of like making a movie in people's heads and because she just loves books. Ms Schwarz has one son, because that's all she can handle and she tolerates her husband because, well, she loves him and there is no help for that. After publishing A Thing Of Beauty with Penner Publishing in October of 2015, she spent some time figuring out how to promote a book. She made some friends and sold some books, but mostly waisted a lot of time on social media. Eventually she threw up her hands in despair and went back to her writing desk. Since then, Ms Schwarz has completed another romance mystery novel, She Walks In Beauty, and is currently working on a related novella and a third big mystery. She also wrote a short story for the anthology Déjà You, published by Emerald Lily Publishing in May, 2017. Wicked House is her first attempt at self publishing, and two of her poems were recently published in the collection Fireflies And Fairydust.
