Alone at sea

a dark

When all is quiet and the breath falls heavy and high
As the air slowly thickens in the corners of the room
Shadows long and dark loom, sentinels over my fixed lines
The blank canvas above swirls with imaginary ebbs and flow
As silence gives way to the flutter in my ear
While the edges trace the cupids bow
Adrift, as I am, on a sea of Egyptian cotton
Residue of past coupling whisping up into the air
Anchorless, floating on a tide of longing
Little whispers of sighs lost in solitude
Unheard by the shipmate of a life
