This Ship Is My Home

Nighttime’s bittersweet.
Everyone’s got somewhere to be.
Anywhere but here,
Anyone but me.

I’m riding through the waves,
Reminiscing memories;
I drive fast ‘cus I’d rather die,
Than live to say I never tried
To sail the seven seas.

Shame I’ve spent these golden years in vain,
Hiding beneath war paint with someone else’s name.
It’s all the same when we’re down to flesh and bone,
So why do I still fear the unknown?

I can’t drop anchor if I keep you at bay,
So I keep my lips sealed tight;
Pray that I can weather the storm
And live to see another day.
I hope it all goes away.

But I’m in too deep;
Black sheep aren’t blind.
I’ll pray my soul to keep
When I leave it all behind.

No end’s in sight,
So I find refuge alone;
In the stark moonlight,
With no where to go, I’m on my own;
This ship is my home.

Oh how I long to be
Free to be; a mast, a friend.
One day you’ll see,
You’ll see life through my lens.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
