Ebb and Flow
You must login to vote
The water on the beach is pounding
and the sunís now in the sky.
Loneliness creeps within me
-haunting as the coldness in your eye.
Youíre the warmth of all the fires,
youíre the coolness of the rain,
and now again you dress to leave me,
and now again I feel the pain.
Mist of morning now has crept upon us
bringing forth more light beyond the day,
for I have glimpsed beyond your shadow
and now must face the truth and go away.
We are like forsaken players in a drama
trying always to conceal the real side
and so I let you slip from me in silence
for I know if I speak, youíll only hide.
I hear the waves roll outside our window
and watch two shattered souls sink in the sea.
I know the wanting that seemingly still calls you,
if in love, you wouldíve found in me.
Each thunderous crash cries I am not your freedom.
White foam waves break and bleed my anguished sorrow.
Sadly, I canít change either fate or nature,
yet I know the tide will ebb and flow, tomorrow.
