Becalm

I’ve travelled across a sea
Blue below
Blue above
Elements merging…
Momentarily
It was all sky that I could drown in.

I played hide and seek with Problems
But like a game
They always find you
Even if not for a while
Even if you can imagine they’re not there
They all ways find you.

When you close your eyes in the warm sun
The red haze of the back of your eyelids
distracts you.
You inhale the noises
You hear the smells
You don’t have to think.

But at night
When I close my eyes and there is
Blackness…
All is quiet
And he whispers
sensuously in my ear of the times I enjoyed
And wish for
The times I cannot have again.
His words brush my neck
and engulf me with the
crushing realisation
I am alone in the dark.
But in the dark he whispers
And memories nowpainful, twist
cloying my senses.

Doldrums leave my sails flat;
Moving on is hard.
Begin with sighs, moving on in inches
Until I bear away…
I can breathe again.

Still…sometimesIn the darkHe whispers

And I remember.
