With caution, I began..,
Creating and breaking memories,
I peered closer, closer still.
"Come to the water" She beckoned me,
"Sit and dance your toes in the cool."
"Let the ocean fold its arms about you,"
"The way a lover used to do."
So I sat awhile and lulled and swayed,
I fell apart breath by breath.
I was washed away as the wind did lift,
I was consumed by the light of the moon.
I forgot myself with each crashing wave,
I fought with space and time.
The chilling zephyrs that stroked my hair,
Was I alive in this storm in my mind?
I have everything here, right now and again,
But somehow the limits were reached.
I bled through the pages of my life in tatters,
And still this silken mark remains the same.
With bleary eyes and a sunken heart,
I fumble fevered with the lock and key.
My dismantled ship forging slowly on,
An assailant to my conscience once more.
With caution, I began anew..
And as a new sun rose and opened his hands,
New horizons I flew.
My eyes open.
