I am like a ship becalmed
In a sea of emotion.
No driving force is here
Because you are gone
Elsewhere, to blow your
Motive winds of power
Upon another. This cannot be.
It is my sails you should unfurl.
With each sweet moment
I defy you to resist
The power you hold
To move this human Marie Celeste
That now lays silent on the millpond sea.
And clever yet with all you do
Your trap is set, to seek one who
Will Master be, and take the reins
To lead you cross the ocean plains
Out of the calm
Into the stormy sea,
And back into the calm again.
