Poem: This Sinking Life

Hold me please.

All I want.

That’s all I ask.

Ol’ me.

Just hold me.


From this sinking life.

Take me away.

From this dangerous sea.

Hold me.


Not my hands.


Hold me by the heart.

And drag me away.

From everything

That’s holding me



(C) Ayeni The Great, February 2015
