Flung Overboard

Flung overboard and left without notice.
Watched as the ship continued
Expected a line to be thrown
Giving meager shouts

Adrift on a piece of driftwood
Wondering when his absence will go noticed
Wondering if they will turn around
Wondering if he's just an extra on some captain's crew
And if anyone really cares

Nothing in sight.
Only the sea in all directions.
Not sure what he could do
Too shocked to paddle
To swim toward the ship
Just floating doing the doggie paddle.

Flung overboard
and too shocked to act.
Traumatized, shocked, hopeless.
With the ship in distance.

Wondering if they would notice'
a simple overboard sailor.
And waiting.
