lost at sea
lost at sea
encaustic
2009

Somewhere between
The world you see and me,
So far between
Here and there
Lie depths that I still plumb
to find a floor,
a resting place

Had you heard those siren songs
What it was that has gone wrong?
Could I see that space?
Could that be the place?
I lost you in a sea
Far gone from here
And memory washes up in waves
The shipwreck of a time I loved
In vain

Somewhere between
The world you see and me,
So far between
Here and there,
I lost you to a melancholy
fluid indecision
Freedom on a dizzy mission
Drifting on a whitecap hope -
A madcap scope of life to come
With roving dreams
casting nets
to catch a song i could not sing
