Things Said To Be Ineffable

Spread the love

Your
image
haunts me and
silently sings
as a roseate sunset floods the sea
hopelessly I sigh your name into wind
soothing sweet ache
and in vain
compose
self
thoughts
plague me
day and night
I kiss the sky
love’s a storm that arrives unexpected

In
heart of
emerald
sea whisper dreams
lest the stars tonight flutter into dust
I stand amidst calm – chaos of city
understand woe
as a friend
without
help
feel
the sun
soft, stealing
breath of evening
as possibilities spread before us
