    Tortuously abandoned by the winds of fate.
    Wind swept salt breezes dissipate.
    All concious thought of your survival.
    Lost in a torment of ultimate Survival.
    When will the calvary announce it's arrival.
    Mind wonders hopelessly,for the calvary
    is late.
    Thirst cannot wait.
    Hunger no longer satisfied by the shipwrecked
    sushi.
    Hands over board taunt sea creatures capture
    only release from a sea tortured life is rapture!
    and sweet relief from a death/burial at sea.
    One thought of survival is fight...
    The sea has taken the fight out of me.
    Long has the thought to flee been my illusion.
    The reality...
    LOST AT SEA!

    ...very nice-ly done!! isn't it amazing how many
    personal issues (so to speak) that we can equate
    to that same sea that you speak of... & how if
    we let it... we can drown or get lost in the depths.

    mmm mmm mmm... thank you for provoking my
    thought processes this evening!! :)

    itsallLove, chile.

    From the raging billows of the stormed tossed sea
    a light peers through the darkness
    taking you by the hand
    and guiding you safely
    to calmer waters
    embrace the light
    for in it you shall
    find peace
    and joy
    and love
    Let the Light from the Lighthouse
    Shine on you.
