… And You!!! #Flashfiction

… and with them

 last vestige of hope

swept away in the current

a stormy existence


That life boat

in the haze

 called to me

it’s unattainable


… and so

I live

caught in the current

below the waves


one hope

the end will come soon

for what is there

to give me breath


thank you for …

a momentary ray


on that little boat


…and you must

stay afloat

for others

 need hope

… and you!!!

Each Friday is awesome – many writers and bloggers get together and write a story in a mere 55 words. This piece is a little more prose and symbolic in nature. Thank you to G-Man for hosting weekly!

Thanks Mike for this awesome shot off Morro Bay…http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikebaird/3016985275/

  4. That’s right, people. Don’t drown in your sorrows, no matter how you try to do it, because the sun will rise again. Nice one, moon lady. 🙂
