One of the

Hardest things to

Do I’ve found

Is trying to

Embrace a cold

Heart they sting

When touched remain

An island swimming

In seas despair

Surrounded by the

Rusty husks of

Those that ventured

Too close and

Found themselves marooned

I’ve decided rather

To stay far

Off shore deciding

To protect my

Vessel rather than

Be seduced by

The promises of

The pirates treasure
