September's Waves

September's soft and brown
Quiet, night comes early
The light's are dim
The music turned low
The TV on mute
Flashing colors against the wall

Liquor aroma
Silent screaming, trembling
Fists clench and release
Eyes pool

Only shaking hands reach for me
Only trembling voices speak to me

Your hand drops from mine
Your eyes fall from mine
Your lips don't part for mine

A cold side of the bed
A burnt-out candle by an empty bassinet

Darkness unfolds
Black waves climb the walls
They reach my ankles 
My knees
My thighs
My shoulders
My neck
They climb over my head

Drowning in September's waves
