Complicated Relationship

you know
I could do nothing
about it

(I am like a lamb
that does not know
the eagle overhead
is in its descent)

seeing her light
I began to hear
her siren’s song

(and when the talons
sank deep I struggled
but not to escape
to hold on.)

for without her beacon
I should surely perish
on the jagged rocks
of the sea

Editing stage: 


love that

thank you


The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight
