Marillion is David Nelson Bradsher, a self-constructed Byronic Hero (or Zero), flawed but well-meaning, simple but paradoxical, and still a work in progress.

Portfolio | Become A Fan

Most of the time I manage to ignore
my little doubts, and I will listen to
the roll/crash/hiss of waves that split the shore,
before they blend as if a salty stew
for my ingestion, drinking with my mind
(my heart too full to take its wisdom in);
and I remember hearing, “Love is blind,”
then I conclude, “My God, I’m blind again.”

But sight is overrated when our pace
is like the long, slow oceanic songs,
reaching their perfect endings in a place
that a completed wave would want to go—
a place of purpose, where the end belongs—
without directions. Yes, the waves just know.


The book continues with The Dark of Part-Time Lovers. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
A sonnet with a different rhyme scheme. They're not all Shakespearean or Italian, you know? Done in iambic pentameter with metrical subs at the beginning of lines 1, 11 and 12.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
