Poetry Paradise: ‘Vessel’

Vessel

starbuckss

I am the vessel for everyone’s heartbeat

Each one with a purpose

A reason to start

And keep going

Unknowing

Of the time they will stop

And the blood will turn from dark red

To invisible gold

I am the vessel for everyone’s memory

Each tied to emotions

Some clear, some forgotten

But easily remembered

Like the vision of the sea

Right after a storm

When the water runs free

So give me your story

And I’ll give you my voice

I’ll speak words you would never

Dare to say aloud by choice

So give me your heart

And I’ll give you my love

And I hope maybe someday

That may be enough

I am the vessel for everyone’s tears

Each secret confession

Of personal fears

If you cry without reason

I don’t judge you at all

Because sometimes it must be

That tears have to fall

I am the vessel for everyone’s lives

I’m the means for the dead

To keep being alive

Because through me the lost souls

Can send signals to man

I am a vessel

A vessel I am
