    Trash Talk (or Message in a Bottle)


    How many words turn to dust

    in the Desert of Romance,

    and how many verses are thrown alive

    into the Sea of Chance,

    and how many bottled longings float

    away on the falling tide,

    to join in the ocean with others

    and in the Gyre elide?

    Yet once in a while one is cast up

    with the jugged djinn still inside,

    that calls to another longing soul

    on the shore of the Sea of Chance,

    and once in while soft rain may fall

    in the Desert of Romance.

    sounds like you are unlucky in love which would be a shame as you express yourself so well.

      Sounds lucky in love to me. One thing I agree with you about is that there is a lot more thrown out there than ever really comes back.

        Unlucky in life
        unwrites love.
        Depersonalise
        the verse above.

              No word for the flotsam
              of the East Pacific gyre?
