Your Ship Wreckage (Poetry)

Here is a little something I wrote a while ago and thought I would share it here today.

Your Ship Wreckage

And so it is
another blackened day
another frost bitten
in between
the beauty
of darkness

a granny smith apple
the elegance
and the warmth 
the coffee
and the pie

when you spill
yours as you 
flap those jaws
amongst the wreckage
begging for
receiving the same 
boring look 
you always do

you push
you pull
like a drain eel
like a dying seal
how many times
will you open 
that door?

you create
you burn
your own disaster
into being
because its 
all you've ever known

perhaps one day
the capability of 
coping with truth
will finally 
consume you
beneath the wreckage
of your ship
