Lost Love’s Eternal Need

Have you seen
dark
tumultuous
crashing waves;
bruised in color
slamming
crushing against hardened sand
sucked eagerly back
a hunger
a searing need
for lost souls
sacrificed to watery graves?
Ghosts
creeping
fog glowing
chill in the air
as they come
silent
riding
bobbing
fading
returning to the deep
as calmed
the sea becomes
mirrored glass
beneath which lays
a veritable graveyard
of forgotten bones,
forgotten men
still riding phantom waves
searching for their lost loves.

Ghosted Love

I never got to meet you.
You never got to hold me.
I was a fool
falling for you.
You were so confused.
Wife
children
how could I compete?
Your voice
I heard
I felt to my core
dreaming of days to come
when I would be yours.
Feel your lips.
Feel your hands.
Feel you.
I knew with certainty
that this would fail
whatever it is that we had
and again 
proven right
realizing I have no recourse
no tears can I shed
in remorse.
It is not a wonder
family for you
always shall come first
recognize that I can.
What I fell for 
a fantasy
a dream
never to be achieved
realized
I must accept.
I fell in love with a dream.
I mourn a ghost
for I knew you not.
