Afro-Caribbean Odyssey

Your sun-drenched hair
Caresses my face and wipes my tears
As we waft on the high seas,
Tossing in the Caribbean breeze.
Another night falls
Casting a shadow on memories of home,
Long gone.
Not forgotten.
The ocean erupts, and tightens her grasp,
Deafening screams, a new moon dawns.
Shimmering night,
Shrilling cries,
A journey just begun.
Life as I've known it
Has just ended.
Your sun-drenched hair
No longer caresses my face, or
Delights in the rays of the sun.
Drenched by greed, tossed with pain,
Only the shadowy memories remain.
