Sea Waves [*Bold As Love*]

I did wish, I was
That reflection, you were looking on to
But I am, afraid, it is the sun’s

While you were rowing the boat
I pretended I didn’t notice
Your swagger, and the chaotic waves together

Though i was in a bluesy poetic mood
You completely lost me
To Hendrix’s tones and the disappearing treeline

Tonight, the full moon is up
And so I wish, our boat had sunk
Into the void, the sea claimed to create

We would go down, into the water
With a bobbing sound
Touch the floor, and bounce back up

But buoyancy does us no good
and so the deliberate silence
proved, simultaneously, vital and vain.
