As the title says, but adrift where and why?
|I closed my eyes for a second,
it grew to years.
it was the color of a broken heart,
faded to gray.
The tide sweeps in,
taking me in its current to its depths,
I willingly give in to the precarious.
The world becomes a womans defenses while in love,
She said, "Leave the light on."
The sand caressed my toes,
sipping the sunshine,
I found compromise.
The moon rose in plot to overthrow the sun.
The sun ran,
and the night bird sang big.
I stood at the edge of time,
hoping for a pause
so I could
take steps back.
