Titanic 1

1912

Arrived

Dockside

And saw

Her awe

Her Regalness

Her Pride

Unsinkable

As She was called

No turning back

Elizabeth

Boarded

Not knowing

The fate

Of a new adventure

Uneasy

By all accounts

Makes her way

To B Deck

B7

All she knew

And so told

The unsinkable

Set sail

Waves

Caressing her hull

Wind

Boisterous

Knocking at her bow

Elizabeth

Strolling along

Nestled in

Warmth

Bitterness

Ran through her

The Atlantic’s bite

Comfort found

Within the sun

Stillness overcame her

Dressed in Elegance

Admiring the

Grand staircase

Dinner this evening

Music rang with joy

Cigars

Laughter

Pleasantries of the evening

Stillness

In the night

Something is not right

Go back

And enjoy

The pleasantries

Something

Is not right

Nestled within

The berth

Her book in hand

The night glided on

Then

11:40pm

A shutter ran

Beneath

Right side

Shivers of fear

Arose within her

Book dropped

To the floor
