Cloud dusts over starlight,
shielding gray on gray.
The empty space next to me reminds
I am alone.
Breathe in –
Mood ring blue depths
instead of sky
Looking for reflection,
beg connection
Somewhere in the dark of night
to hope to see
your face, breath
washing over me
like ocean mist and drowning –
I wonder if you think of me,
look next to you, alone at night,
miss the rise and fall of my chest –
It’s all I can think of when I look to the sea
as time passes through my fingers,
silky and delicate like sand.
