Featured Poem
Siren Song
A Sonnet

You wash gentle
   on the shore of regret
 a surging swell
     rushing over the beach
   a soft swale
       receeding beyond my reach
         feelings I long to forget

You flow fluid
   through pools of remorse
 pulling me in
     like a subtle current
   engulfing me
       in a troubled torrent of doubt and desire
     want without recourse

You slip silent
   between failing fingers
 a trace liquid seduction
     you linger
   in my eye
       and in visions
         you summon my thirsting heart
 like a soothing siren
   your soft songs swirl
     around me and
       surround me
         in your cruel clear ocean
           I drown
