Metaphor Poem

I wrote this poem because I feel extremely alone now that I have both of my parents gone.
I feel alone and
I do miss them.

In a sea of salt waters
Endevours are enclosed
As insobriety washes away
My lifes secrets are exposed
Loss all around me is fully evident
As my soul begins to scream
Not knowing where I am headed
But definitely knowing where I have been
Hurt keeps rolling in not knowing what is in store
Bandaging the broken pieces
That slowly washes upon shore
The water no longer blue
But instead a sea of red
Thinking about forever closing my eyes
And floating away on this drifting bed
To remember would be to much
To surrender leaves me no possibilities
Because the water is my life that is slowly drowning me
