Beautiful. Melancholic verses that speak to a hero's journey and the pain of the inner child. I hope you write more!

Wave crushes the broken heart

Over and over

May the silent light lead one to shore

(Randomly prompted by your image)

& Thank you for sharing your poem. :)

"But the humdrum’s beat can sing like a Siren’s song

To souls whose thrills bring pain."

Love your poem. I wonder if you have always liked poetry ? I started writing recently but growing up I actually disliked it. Probably because the sort of poems I have been introduced to felt “unnatural” to me. It took me a while to realize that poetry can mean anything and be composed in a way that suits the mind of the one writing it.
