captain of the night

sailor's sunset,
torrents of blue,
ship of the night,
tear on through,
sunset on my hopes,
storms in my dreams,
fight the undertow,
driving rain teams,
ocean of lost souls,
lucky catch ahead,
into the light,
part alive, part dead,

captain of the night,
hold course into the sunrise,
wave to other captains,
as they pass by,
heaven in their soul,
hell in their eyes.

Nice - A salute from Captain Ollie...formerly Midshipman Ollie.

some sublime romanticism going on here -- The Nightmare Life-in-Death under the night skies -- terrific piece

Got a real Conradian feel to it. Kind of like Heart of Darkness. Good job.
