Her waves of words crashed down upon my brow
with a steady chill
as I watched helplessly in the shadow of my longing
for a single kiss.
Brief were the days I spent in love
and long were the nights I wished for it.
Now, drunk with my own aloneness,
I stagger into dreams that mirror my wants......
Clouds across the sky surge
as the sun beats upon them with a gentle warmth,
Oceans shape the shores with the artistic insight of the heavens,
Beauty flourishes within the life that spawns around me.
All seen through the tears of a memory
that holds me captive each day.
