The Ocean....

An Old Lover

It’s been years since

I saw you.

You haven’t changed a bit

too busy for me

in the middle of the day;

summer’s heat washing

in and out.


Predictable. That’s what

you are

some, like me, might call you

boring.

But you settle for nothing

less than the depths and

even there you move,

restless,

anxious as a dog in heat.


You wear

white hats – they fit you well;

framing your shameless shadowy

depths.

You reach up,

to shelter your heart from

the light which bleaches

your beauty.

Or is it a greeting? The wave

quickly falling as you recognize

my cool glance.

Your flirting

turns into a trench of foam

at my feet.


You will not be my lover.

I have another.
