fortress

in my fortress by the sea 
I ponder thoughts washing over me 
under the moon, tide’s ebb and flow 
do I stay or shall I go? 

one by one the answers come 
just enough to keep me numb 
giving what you think I need 
some of the truth will make me bleed 

like driftwood washed upon my beach 
footsteps left, etched very deep 
no wind can me them disappear 
always present, always clear 

I sit in a very tall tower 
looking down on what aspires 
growing like the ivy leaves 
intricate the vine that weaves 

the sun comes up and warms the sand 
in this never never land 
is this love that glows with day? 
why does night bring doubt my way? 

in this fortress by the sea 
I ponder thoughts washing over me 
under the moon, tide’s ebb and flow 
can I stay, or do I go?
