My Forbidden Sea

Silence, an infinite melancholy
washed in waves over my seventh sea
voyaging to the abyss of my limit
emotion stood still, to sail no permit

Wind blew from the farthest north
embracing depths I could not fathom
the riddle of the waters starred with confusion
condemned a wandering soul to an infinite search

And beyond the tides, lay dreams concealed
glimmering first steps, devoured by fear
gone before the sun will see
the calmest wave of my forbidden sea

    Julian - So sad, that your silence is an infinite melancholy. My silences are restorative and healing. But you express your deep abyss so well, I could get lost in those depths.

am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
