Time

Time
beckons
chimes
clangs
against
my memories
against
my heart

while
the sea
throws itself
against the rocks

I practice
breathing
hold myself
back
from the need
of the sea
as it reaches
oblivion
amongst
bleached
rocks
of promises
that
are never met

Still
from seas
far away from you
I hold you
in my heart
and dream of you
of us
of California sunsets

Do you
dream of me?
