Me And – poem (#8)

me &

seems like all my friends are swimming
frolicking as mermaids in the sea
while i sit on the edge of the deserted beach
trying in vain to keep from drowning

memory fails on date or reasons why i
patched up a shell and started hiding
became a ghost in wide open spaces
erecting an umbrella to block out the sky

i offer praise to sun & moon
occasionally wishing on some stars
building higher & higher walls
& singing badly out of tune
