24th November

Sailing to Dover

floating to death on water

we hadn’t a chance.

Screaming for life

for breath, a hand to hold me

swallowing silence.

Sinking and drowning,

a cold wet graveyard for home.

I hoped for better.

  1. Well done Paul, brilliant and thought provoking – every now and then we need to stop and reflect on the lives that others are struggling to have and at times just don ‘t succeed.
