The Winter Sea

As far as the eye can see

I walk and I walk to reach you

Why are you so far away from me?

The moon is playing a game of push and pull


A silent roar emits

No one is around to hear your cries

Into the emptiness you needlessly speak

Until a single being finally answers your call


Cold, grey and blue

Flat, hard and wet

The textures are unappealing

The colours are muted and yet…


You compel and draw me near

I want to be near you

To be engulfed in your beauty and endlessness


Am I meant to be here?

Your territory I’ve invaded

Adding my own unwanted colour

But you let me stay


You let me witness you
