A Romantic Harmony
It is when everything around him stops,
there is a sudden surge of energy,
perhaps a desire,
possible of moving the world around him,
in his mind,
the notion of love is simply beyond time.
I stood alone on a pier
watching the sunset,
I imagined the world I had touched,
a soft reminder of beauty in elegance,
I knew the peace this offered my personal world,
I suddenly felt I stepped off to submerge my heart.
While the sea waters enveloped me,
occasional bobbing to glance back toward life,
I recognized certain passions held my soul,
my eyes feeling the waters confuse the setting,
mine were tears,
floating beyond the surface waters,
I suddenly lost my way in a fog far adrift.
I looked, I searched, I panicked to see her
standing on the dock, awaiting a purpose to reach
yet I knew my ability to grasp
was now in a constant fade,
my pleas falling just short of her eyes,
desire became my albatross.
My tears began to cast their shadow …
I want so little of the confusion that occurs
when releasing the riptides upon my yearn.
