Waves And Warrens

Injurious fate,
Ruinous, raw luck,
All of me missing,
Connection, with you.

Years spent at sea,
Surrounded, near flooded,
Towering waves,
Obscuring my view.

So desperately seeking,
So longing, so wanting,
A glimpse of your shoreline,
Your landfall, to cling.

But immeasurable swells,
Building, concealing,
Obstructing my vision,
Our joining, denied.

Now so far from sea,
Metropolitan masses,
Searching same throngs,
An emptiness remains.

Each woman’s eyes,
So fleeting, disconnected,
Amplifies loneliness,
Languishing, and loss.

Nights in the city,
Realistically mimic,
Cacophonous waves,
My prospects, constrained.

Alleyway bodies,
Mazes, so twisting,
Temporal satisfaction,
Unfulfilling, depress.

Endless, urban warrens,
Entrapping, demeaning,
Like waves on the ocean,
Certainty, enshrouded.

But somehow, a mystery,
Dream now delivered,
I found a sure safety,
My angel, my love.

Through lifetime of waves,
City warrens, so gnarled,
I see my forever,
My one and only, revealed.

Clear now, horizons,
Eternity at hand,
Straight path laid before us,
Love no longer concealed.
