I once craved
what I couldn’t have,
dreamt of things
so far in between
my heart and my mind — 
Where raging madness
drinks and dines.

Silver longing
restless humming
fierce rising
helpless crushing — 
Never so deep
as the twilight sea
coloured by emotions
weaving the words of passion.

Regret or desire
it’s all the same
reaching for something
to hide the shame — 
Salt and tears
wind and fears
of never finding
you in me.
