Lost at Sea – Poetry Collaboration ft. Mathew

This is my first poetry collaboration with Mathew/Blog of the Wolf Boy
(A very talented and amazing writer, poet and fellow blogger).
Please do visit his blog for some awesome reads.

Thank you so much Mathew for giving me such a wonderful opportunity 🙏🌷.

(The Wolf Boy’s part)

Took a boat into the Ocean,
but ended swept up in a storm.
The vessel tumbled while in motion,
now I’m lost and all forlorn.
Riding on the waves,
as they rhythmically crash and break.
On a life raft for many days,
unable to make but one mistake.
The turquoise seas,
and the ocean breeze-
almost make me feel at ease.
But, the salt dries out my skin,
and I’m circled by an ominous fin.
Out at sea for a whole week,
without, but one fish to eat.
Running out of saltless water,
and the sun burns even hotter.
Yet out there in the distance,
I see some land at hand!
and I flow towards the beach,
with a strong tides assistance.

(Sarika’s Part)

Overwhelmed at the sight of land…
a fleck of light in the dark…
To rest my feet upon the sand…
the yonder journey, I embark…
Braving the feral gale…
Battling the savage waves…
Stalwartly, I sail…
to escape the sea’s vicious embrace…
Soul throbbing and heart-pounding, 
with rapture abound…
As I finally touch the shore and
crumble to the ground…
I feel the warm breeze, stand firm and
the new journey, I begin…
With the remnants of the sea
still latching to my skin…
And the ghastly ordeal engraved
forever on my conscience…
