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 only secrecy 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

This is a psychological masterpiece. "you show me only mystery only secrecy somehow more special than the superficial truths you reveal to others" Beautifully done, Kelli.
