Here’s Where the Story Ends

Here’s Where the Story Ends

a Poem by Raquel Swann 

Inspired by the song of the same name 

Oh the long years 

We have spent 

Drifting apart 

Two boats at sea 

Bound together 

Severed by time 

And change. 

I will watch with 

Caring eyes

That your boat 

Reaches land safely 

Those final words 

You spoke to me 

This evening 

Deafening truth 

Blinding reality

Aromatic agony 

Embracing finality 

Bittersweet actuality

Mangled my senses

I take with me 

The souvenirs

Of which I 

Hold dearest

With any luck 

I will be lost 

At sea forever

Waiting for weather 

And erosion 

To finish me off 

Once and for all.
