tides of time

shadowed in midnight blue
i lie,
sprawled in this desert of a bed,
wearing nothing
but the scarlet of my desire
always waiting
no one comes

we are born alone
we die alone
there’s no reason
for us to live alone
in between
sometimes though
it just falls out that way

there is a certain beauty
in being alone
no need for costumes
no need for truth
keeping oneself to oneself
can be freeing

but when the fire burns
too hotly
i rise from that bed
and throw on some clothes
and walk to sea
the timeless sea
that lies quiet tonight
under blanketing clouds

the moon in her silence
hangs high and majestic
as i throw off those clothes
and stand alone
always alone
and give myself over
to the changing yet changeless
tides of time
