Bittersweet Sea

Night descends on the chiseled shadows of a disappearing dusk,

And envelopes them into a backdrop of vast darkness

Still, she finds solace in nightfall’s mysterious, ethereal, essence

She fixates on the glimmers of starlight

watching them wink at an ever changing moon

She stands at the edge of a moonlit shore

Admiring the inseparable bond

Between the silent moon and swaying waves,

If only the night’s tranquil energy would make its way into her dreams

And calm the storm brewing between her ears

She yearns to liquefy her bleak thoughts

And pour their melancholy into the sea

For the moon to push far out into the abyss.
