Poetry: “Allure Me Along”


As you start a song, the sea sings along too.       

Allure me along, a siren you are.                           

Blue eyes gaze upon mine, my eyes are glued.   

Oh trouble you are, I look from afar.                       


Jealous man I am, rage filled me instead.                  

Singing for a sailor not for my ears.                         

You’re watching me cry like I’m a hothead.              

Like the moon the sun leaves me in many tears.   


Me and you are an eclipse: we both glow.      

I couldn’t resist her; I forced a date.                   

Oh, she didn’t like me, why can’t we flow?        

Like stars we’re connected to each other’s fate.        


I watched you weeks after dating that male.       

Same drunk sailor you deceived, I went pale.
