It is truly scary
when thoughts develop lips
holding real conversations
like best friends, both mentally instabil
Whirlwinds trapped in physicality
How bad I want one
even loners need friends to survive
one who will be there a decade after
no matter the race, gender or preference
One I wouldn’t try so hard to keep
or give reasons to stay
one that doesn’t care about roots of my tangled past
and the thick thorns isolating my heart
so long as my ideas dance freely
and emotions bloom with every feeling
And maybe I’ve had one or five before
At a time I couldn’t value treasures
because being open is still funny to me
but I’ll ask the man above one last time
For a treasure who will stay
and the grace to not fuck it up.
Captain Beard eye is not like any regular pirate you’ve heard about before
He’s not a scruffy vulgar scallywag like the other sea robbers in the high ocean. He didn’t steal treasures or have an eye patch. He didn’t even have a seagull that gawked on his shoulder from sun up to sundown .
He didn’t squander his nights on laudanum and flute.
No beard eye is not like any pirate you’ve ever seen
His sailing ship was the whole earth. He’d would sail the earth through stormy waters. If sailors fell overboard, he’d send a rescue boat . With intentions purer than the fresh water he sailed. Sometimes the sea was foggy because the sailors disobeyed his commands, but that didn’t distract beard eye from his goal to teach them to love each other and him.
A night came during his adventure in the North ocean, A whirlwind struck the water into a violent storm, threatening to drown his crewmen. The sailors cried and whimpered and wailed. “Gather your courage men, the Lord our God will save our lives” Beard eye commanded. Some of his cabin boys hid under the rescue boats, while others contemplated drinking mercury.
But Beard eye held the wheel firm in his hands, and his tobacco pipe firm between his teeth. He sailed the boat as fast as his could, even though it had begun to sink. The crew had lost all confident in him. But soon, the ship was gliding from wave to wave because of the speed. Beard eye neither slowed down or wavered. And just like that the sails could touch the clouds. The sailors couldn’t believe their eyes. Perhaps we are dead, they mummered amongst themselves. But Indeed, the ship was flying over Africa. It landed somewhere in the Indian Ocean.
Hence, Beard eye became not only the most famous pirate in the heavens and the earth, but will be the most respected name for generations to come.
