Vergift

I’m stranded
Out on the rock
Of the beach
Of your love

Searing sunshine
Simmering horizon
The boiling ocean

I’m sickly
By vergift
Your gift
To me
In the dying light
The fading embers
A sickly-sweet kiss
The taste of death
On those lips
Those tracing
Fingertips

Disheveled
Gone haywire
Watch the machine
Misfire
Tinker and toil
Ratchet and wrench
A thousand more pieces
For you to try and fit
Reconfigure
Reconstruct

My malleable heart
The blacksmith’s iron
Forge and shape
Temper and mold
Glowing white-hot
Searing sunshine
You’ve left my body
So very cold

Ledge Lighthouse

Spring Point

Ledge Lighthouse at Spring Point. South Portland, ME

There are wooden park benches
each engraved with a message
to lost heroes and lovers
adjacent to a small paved path
at an old fort built along the coast
with the perfect view of the bay
dotted with stark white sailboats
fishing trawlers and bobbing buoys
feel the cool breeze of change
blowing gently at my back
and the sweet sea salt air
nesting deep within my lungs
it feels good to be alive
sitting on the ledge and
drinking in the ocean scene
with the sun shining down
reflected radiance comes
rippling from the waves
washing calmly onto the shore
lapping against the breakwater
down by the lighthouse
