Ocean Dreams

Lapis lazuli
churning, within
watery depths,
leaping
turbulently-
brushing vibrant
violet sunsets,
earthbound-
reaching, admiring
soft plumes
soaring, liberated…
horizon seeking,
pink purple
skies, sinking,
swirling, deceptively
dancing, embracing
ebony.
Taunting,
twinkling
eyes,
teasing-
nightly.

Fallout

Tattered ruins,
an empty shell,
discarded and thrown away.
Spirit drained,
once again.

The ride is over-
it never really began.
Was a moment,
merely-
a lifetime.

Summed in a word,
Lost.

Alone again.
Shunned again.
Ignored again.

This,
pastime.
I will not play.
I will not take the field.

I shall,
for evermore,
be,
the solitary figure.
