Richard Schnap - Asylum

The tides of life
Bring the skeletons of ships
For they are now ruled
By a lunatic moon
Spreading them over
The shores of the world
Whose bone white beaches
Become graveyards of grey
And each one spills
The bodies of sailors
Their dead eyes still fixed
On the treacherous stars
For the heavens seem caught
In their own dark madness
Mirroring the ones
Driving men to their doom
Richard Schnap is a poet, songwriter and collagist living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His poems have most recently appeared locally, nationally and overseas in a variety of print and online publications.
