Thrown Away

In response to prompt provided by Sadje – “What Do You see #147

Thrown away
Tossed overboard
Into a roiling sea
of pain
of heartache

Sinking deep
Waves of despair
Clog the nose
fill the lungs
with sorrow

No perch
Liquid foundation
Undulating underneath
struggling for
lost stability

Voice muted
Disimpassioned ears
Ignore cries for help
anonymity engulfs
faded away
