Treasure Island

Wrenching


Among the lucid stretch of stars
a silver crescent

moon
its warmth filtering into the room
tenderly around me
like your embrace

once

Now sprawled on the couch
alcohol caressing
my head
my thoughts

I stare and stare out the window
wishing
hoping
drunken dreams mark my days

I remember the song of your voice
the glow of your smile
the fire of your fingers
the wine of your lips

and passions swell
wanton waves
in my heart

but a stray breeze
a soft rustle of drapes

answer my longings...

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
