Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Absence

Beautifully poignant. Please visit the original and experience the words of this talented poetess.

Poet Girl Em

I could map the entire universe
know where every star was –
named, categorized, charted by size

I could surround myself with every desire
lavish feasts, flawless fabric, and flowers
taste all passion offered, bounty of lovers

I could travel to all ends of existence
no land unexplored, no country neglected
dip in all waters, climb all mountains

I could immerse myself in knowledge
fill in all my empty cracks with facts
distract myself with arts and crafts

But, there would be no denying,
like an obsidian void swallowing all,
as if nothing existed from dawn of time…

I would still sense your absence.

I created this blog as a way to express myself using my poetry and photography. It is a reflection of who I am and of the things that interest me. I have many muses…perhaps the greatest one being my love of the sea, how I gravitate to anything relating to water, how I feel a pull toward it deep in my bones. At times I will be revisiting content that I have shared on Twitter which has, until now, been the forum I have expressed myself in. That said, the content will change over time as the blog grows and develops. It is my hope that the reader will enjoy the journey.
