{seafaring ode}

i once read,

a poem that grew to be my favorite:

‘it’s not the ship but our own selves that we miss’

and that explained my heartbreak perfectly.

starving for something unavailable,

something i couldn’t find in myself,

so my voyage carries on,

caught between the devil and the deep blue sea,

as with the rest of life.

–e.l. jayne
