Rescue

Days of waiting
under wind-starved sails
Her heart had taken to rationing
All that remained of a hope
now capsized
Time was as still as a moonless tide

Sometimes in the breeze would blow
another heart without oars
with a wanderer’s eye
and a pirate’s remorse
and for a while they’d hold
an uneasy course

But she’d grown accustomed to
the quiet nights
No room for reeling in a heartache
Two souls steering through a starless sky
does not a rescue make

Now and again
she’d have visions of light
goading her on toward some promise land
but sometimes drifting is it’s own relief
keeping her distance from invisible reefs

But she’d grown accustomed to
the quiet nights
No room for reeling in a heartache
Two souls steering through a starless sky
does not a rescue make
