Darkness

by stevewaldrop

In the depth of darkness When time has no meaning Save to delineate loneliness And the soul’s keening,

Heartbeats thump slow as turning tide.

Unconsciously for you I reach, Searing, aching, hungering flame. Fruitless in cold starlight search, Finding naught but empty blame,

Again the bitter waves I ride.

Through frosted glass from far above, A ray of silver moonlight breaks, Borne on a breeze to sheltered cove, Where memory soothes salty aches,

And in ghostly arms my soul doth hide.
