Judas of the Sea

She calls

Yet to another flight of ships

That rode the sea on Monstrous tides;

Eyes glimmering with Cheshire smiles

Bouncing, fading through her light

In the deep

They speak, she listens

“Aye Laddies, sweet mercy, we’re here”

Shouts of hungry men dive through the crackling waves

Laughter resembling thunder

Plunder upon her rocky shores.

She beckons

Her soft sweet siren narrowed out

Men, million, have passed

But heard of never again.

They furrowed through the tides

Like a puppet on strings, craving her sweet soft call of home

She speaks, they listen

‘I’ll take care of you, bosom yourself in my dreams’

Bellowing in the distance, lassoing the ships

Into midair sailing through death cries of broken fantasies

Begging from her rocky shores.

She devours

The laughter of men that spun a web

Of screams that died a slow death.

Their eyes melt into the deep abyss

Scouring for an answer to this mass deception

That stood in front of them tall, striking, shameless…

Illusory glee danced off her slender body

Consuming menfolk whose hands held on to their lives;

Her rising waves snatched them out of the sky like sharks

Hauling them deep into death itself.

She’s alive.

    Love it, Treshan! You should write more you know, your once in a blue moon appearances need to be more often! I understand the want to write on the other side of lighthouses, the darker one, even the photo itself is encouraging such notions, I can’t bring myself to write similarly, but you’ve done a lovely job of it 🙂

    Like one of Joe’s demons of the deep in poetry form.

    ‘Her rising waves snatched them out of the sky like sharks/Hauling them deep into death itself.’ Such beautiful descriptions! I also loved ‘she devours’. Great poem, Treshan! Thanks for contributing to Picture it & write!
