The lighthouse keeper’s daughter

He can only desire [ whispered]
her eyes - the dye of dark water- her soft skin-like the first fall of snow
drag him down-by each cold-scarecrow limb-she’s a deadly undertow
He can only desire [spoken]
This lithe woman whom-his stare-sought to capture-in that single glance
but lightening needs-no call to strike home only a single chance
at the sleeping foot-high above angry seas-beyond a dolphin’s dance
He can only stare [shouted]
At capsized cobbled streets-falls as steep-as Robin Hood’s Bay
he made a trace-of the jigsaw coast-from fishing village-to ferry boat
his hands hold fast-the rusted rail -in driven rain-a memory map way
of the ferry’s wake-as it slow-ly vanishes-from this-fog-foxed day
Today he steps manly on her island [spoken]
She’s been gone years - the man spits -lighthouse is not for a girl to be
His head shakes- as he draws a darkening door back to the swirling sea.
Seven years was always seven too long [echoed]
