The Sea At Night Does Not Rest

Too tired to rest
I only care
are you out there somewhere
A glass of cheap wine
on the arm of some expensive chair

And do you…
could you
think of me sometime
maybe…
while I’m still alive

The gravity of your movements
swells the tides of my emotions
and you’ll probably never know
You drag me to ecstasy
then to lowest ebb
and you’ll probably never know

You amaze me
with your vagary
I could fall in love so easily
but you won’t let me

Could you
think of me sometime
could you
think of me sometime
maybe…
while we’re still alive…

[2010]

Thanks for reading.

    1. Thanks Chris, that’s kind of you to say. 🙂 I’m really glad you enjoyed this one. I vividly remember sitting on my bed writing it into my notebook and feeling pretty satisfied with it at the time.

    1. Ah ha! Wow, that’s very kind of you. I will have to gather my response and get it posted. I suspect it won’t be until next week though. Thanks so much for the nomination. Honoured. 🙂
