warm yourself by the fire

"Driftwood Desire"

In this current of feverish power
Alone in solitude's hour
Tasting a glimpse of erosion
here in this misplaced explosion
On a hunt for distant fire
Caught this driftwood desire

The sting of the emptinesss
The lash of the bitterness
Bathing in this black and blue
Sailing - but not into you
The tide like an encompassing liar
Still this driftwood desire

Seductive horizon
so tauntingly speaks to me
Silent waves of confusion
so cleverly break near to me
A moon lured ride to a land now drier
Set free...from this driftwood desire
