Looked Away

149 8 5

The time has come for his assured demise

A death promised to all those who observed

He stood static, pondering their advice,

But with eyes shut, he never looked concerned.

The waves crashed hard against our sorry ship, 

As he slithered like a snail to the plank

The sky shook as our vessel took a dip

The captain calling names and taking rank

The ocean blue was where we once rested

Now a haunting home to torturous storms

My friend, alone, his loyalty tested,

Drowns out the noise as his last thought forms

I cannot watch him die for me today

I simply closed my eyes and looked away.
