You pull a tide in Me


you pull a tide in me
like the full moon
upon the wildest of sea

a strange longing
inches its way
into me the day you
appeared,
plays shadow
with my senses

the thousand smiles
over the sea
they are mine for you

the million sighs
over the sea
they are mine
under the gentle
touch of love

the butterfly's
frenzied joy
as it perches
over the cup
of honey wrapped blossom

it is that poem
swept awry in the sea
of my heart
