The Sailor and the Scorpion โ›ต

in #adventure โ€ข 4 years ago

Day after day I was tossed by motions,
Of her wavy seas, her seductive dark oceans.
Sipping on potions, ๐Ÿท
Until we fell out of sync.
The chain apparently had a weak link. ๐Ÿ”—

Son of the dark,
My ship now loose from the mooring. ๐Ÿšข
In seas of self doubt I ended up touring.
Was steering according to an erroneous map.
Yes, the brave and young sailor had started to slack. โš“

The wind and the rain,
On the ship put a strain.๐ŸŒ€
A solitary life raft my refuge.
Idle and ignorant, no at the mercy of the deep.
Wondering how I could never survive this deluge. ๐ŸŒŠ

But storms do pass... โ›…

Now on this boat,
I still feel hope. ๐ŸŒ…
A gallon of fresh water,
And a pound of rope. โ›ฒ

And from under the rope,
a scorpion came. โ™
She spoke with a drawl
When she said my name. ๐Ÿ’‹

I was in pain,
Will she bring me pleasure? ๐Ÿ’™
Thinking of things we could do than just leisure.
She might grant me release if I handled her right? ๐Ÿ’ž
Heavenly bliss?
Or eternal night? ๐ŸŒ›

Got too close she stuck her sting.
But being numb to it all I didn't feel a thing. ๐Ÿ˜•
Crazy from hunger and rabid with thirst.
A quick death is tragic but a slow one is worse... ๐Ÿ’€
