A Journey

This is one of the first poems I ever wrote and one of the first dozen posts I ever made on WordPress years ago.  I am still amazed at how much I have changed over time and the parts within me that remain the same.  

In Her Eyes

In Her Eyes

Shifting sands of forgotten dreams

Life mired in daily struggle

Castles built with youthful exuberance

Washed away by unrelenting waves of apathy

In Her Eyes

The endless horizon that connects us to foreign lands

A lonely cargo ship transporting tedious burdens

Searching for the guidance of a sturdy beacon

That brings promise of a shelter in the storm

In Her Eyes

A sea of desire that has laid bare her soul

Offering a submissive refuge to her ocean god

Her simmering passion is as timeless as the tides

With the lunar pull of her undulating lust

In her eyes, I am found.
