Floating helplessly in between the swaying black

And wispy dark.  Caught on the

Battle line of heaven and earth,

And I lie positioned in between. 

The gaping  hole in my chest had housed only a fake,

for the organ was used only for pumping blood, not

for emotion, passion, or anything that makes us

truly alive.  My real heart is back on my island,

tied to the top of the lighthouse where I left it.

I survive only for the possible sight of the rhythmic

Flashing of light somewhere in the distance, piercing

the dark, searching for me.  Maybe it has been too

long, the lighthouse has found a new conductor,

to sit in her viewing room, share his thoughts,

and battle the darkness together,  each needing

one another, attempting to guide others in the

process.  Looking at the moon I hope for a shift

in its pull, redirecting the tides to push me back home.

God, its so quiet out here tonight.
