 Alan is a freshman English Writing major at Loyola. Alan read poetry at the October 2nd reading at the Columns Hotel. 


We were drifting on the sea.

You looked in my eyes; your gaze fell upon me.

I opened my mouth; the words wouldn’t come out.

You mirrored my silence; the darkness grew around


The tide pulled us far from shore.

Your hand held on my arm just like before.

Our tears were still drying; the wind was stinging our eyes.

I looked to the ocean; we had lost our sight

To the

Abyss. It’s unforgiving.

It leaves us in the dark.

It keeps us close, apart.
