Deeper Blues
I have seen deeper blues Deeper I cannot fathom As a heart drowned by passion or a soul lost in madness. That I should my illusions and her purity keep I let her slip from me on icy waters one Arctic afternoon. Our gazes held hearts longed as her ship receded and I stood on lonely shores I, the world traveller with nowhere to go She, in her quiet little world. [5/22/98]
