A Smooth Sea Never Made A Skilled Sailor

from by Molly Mackler



I am not asleep, I've been drifting through your dreams
a young sailor once told me
that he had found more truth in a bottle
than he had ever found out at sea
I am not asleep

It took two days and three very long nights
the words from your mouth, well they weren't so polite
and I told you that all you needed was to stop
crawling towards the light
I am not asleep

You burned all of your fingertips
trying to seal your letters with a sign of your kiss
so you sailed away and into the night
but you won't break dawn by the morning light
I am not asleep
