Writing a bio for me is hard because I am myself and I could go on and on about how I think of me but would that be correct in others eyes? So I guess the only word I can really use to describe me is Bree and let my writing do the rest.

Sinking Ships Have No Sailors

September 16, 2018

                                                       Sinking ships have no sailors
                                                        don't you find that
                                                        to be true

                                                        Sometimes captains
                                                        will rot at the bottom
                                                         of depths blue
                                                        But everyone else
                                                         They leave, don't they?

                                                            Don't they leave?
                                                        Why won't you leave
                                                            me roped to the mast

                                                            Captains were not made to leave their ships
                                                            Just sailors
                                                            sailors are better that way
                                                            float on

                                                            Let the hull drag it's mass down
                                                            try to get away
                                                            take whatever of the hoard you can make off with

                                                                Let me alone! 
                                                            don't you know, you must know
                                                                sinking ships have no sailors
                                                                there can't be two captains
                                                                Go, please go
                                                                Don't you know? You must know
                                                                sinking ships have no sailors

    I realized that I haven't checked out your profile in a vetty long time. Keep chugging away at that writing! :)

    Thank you! I suppose the choice was on a whim. Thank you for your compliment! It really helps, I think I have had writer's block recently.

    I love it!! I really like how the whole poem sort of centers around that one line, "sinking ships have no sailors", and I also like the rhythm of it and the tone you create. Can I ask, was there any reason you made it all aligned on the left? Like was it just a stylistic choice or was it something else? Anyway, great poem! Keep writing!
