sailor.

i know what my heart is like,
when it braves tumultuous storms.
it is like a white-coated sailor,
tugging firmly at frayed ropes
keeping the sails high in the air
(even when they’ve been torn)
because he’s desperate to stay afloat.
I really had no idea what to write about when I first saw this prompt, but I really wanted to try it out, so I used a word generator to find a topic. 'Sailor' was the first word that appeared so I worked with it, and here's the end result!

    This is so creative, and you wrote it beautifully! Your imagery is so sharp. Also, I love your username! "Solivagant" is such a gorgeous word.

    I forgot to add it into the original text but this is inspired by Ebb by Edna St. Vincent Millay.

    I love this idea-- I don't know much about sailors, but reading this made me feel like I want to be one lol.
