Gazing asunder into the emptiness of the sea,
i glimpsed a ship and jumped with glee,
massive as a mountain it must've been,
but from where I saw a speck was all that was seen,
it was approaching silent as if stalking a prey,
yet swift and steady was it's sway.
A sense of foreboding overcame my senses,
I felt this ship was sailing begin time and tenses ,
for I saw a mast with signs unknown and weird ,
And a captain scratching his shapeless beard,
He was dressed too portly to be a pirate,
maybe I was assuming things imaginary and myriad.
This augury was filling up the cockles of my curiosity,
As the ship approached with an even greater velocity,
and my thirst to investigate was becoming insatiable,
The mystery surrounding the ship was now becoming unbearable ,
And all of a sudden a chill ran down my spine ,
as my gaze crossed the captain's gazing line .
A sense of familiarity shrouded that man's face,
And seeing me he smiled with noble grace,
Weathered by the sea he looked almost like a crone,
But something good in him like gold shone,
And then I saw the tattoo on his arm as he waved ,
And my surprise inside of me collapsed and caved.
I looked at my arm at awe and cognizance,
and it dawned on me within an instance,
That man was beyond humane trivialities,
That was me travelling between realities.
