The Exile 

​The devide between us continues to widen. Like a cast away drifting away from shore I’m tossed about this ocean of tears. With no oars to navigate my way accross this expanse. I would take my chances with the sharks but they show no interest in me. So I drift on this barren desert until I realize how beautiful this God forsaken place is. Here alone by myself.  With only my voice to weaken me. With only my voice to strengthen me. With nobody to sink me or save me. I can’t make out the beach where you were standing, the reason being I’ve drifted so far away from you.  I can no longer see where I’ve been exiled from. Something I did not expect, far away I see there is hope once again. I survived it.
