Love Tides

As the wind drives my boat into a heading sea
She drives my reason far from me.
Cast upon the torrents waves
A broached I flounder in the trough
Lashed to a deck I do not command
Far off from the sure foot of land.

The airs alive with lightnings flash.
My senses reel from her perfumes lash.
