Restless sea

weary to the core

exhausted waiting

for the clock to tell

a faster tale…

too many minutes spent

in idle wonder

mental exercise to keep

from going under

why am I alone

amidst the thronging swarms 

the single note of silence 

in a chaotic symphonic score

I can remember dancing

I can remember believing

in the awesome mystery in all I

created, the ease in which

the muses sang to me, so clearly

now all is under water

all the chords distorted

each motion a puppet’s slow 

contortion… effect & aftereffect

all happening at once

And the moon

refusing to call the tides

I am trapped within

Oh if only a lil illumination please!

A ray of hope to part me from

these impossible depths.
