The Ocean at Night
You summoned my surrender and so I succumbed to you,
not to your fierceness but to your beauty.
in the light you flirt with the masses
but when the moon comes up, she pulls you to me and me to you
but this love is one sided for in no way are you mine
only that I am yours
I can hardly think around you as your tranquil rhythm buries my thoughts
for within you is a pattern so complex I will never understand
a pattern that can take any victim it likes
but tonight it chooses me
in the morning you’ll be transparent with the world
you show me only mystery
somehow more special than the superficial truths you reveal to others
for although it is darkness it is powerful and it is only mine to revere
even as I leave, you continue to call me
But our spell ends at sun up
when once again you turn to pleasing others and I am left loving you like them.
i will wait for your beckon
never ceasing my humble desire
only patient for your honored reciprocation
