adrift

no longer tied
to a mooring
one can only see
so far
the horizon
barely exists
enduring
feeling lost
on an endless sea
of misplaced emotions

desire attempts
to burn through the mist
of vanished hope

stability found in
steadily fixing one’s feet
calling out
into the fog
yet knowing the answer
lay in one’s heart

closing eyes
turning off
the mind
waiting for the soul
to come to rest
no longer adrift
