while traveling by canoe
she knelt on a sleepless lake
craving warmth by an open fire
rejection nestles in
while dalliance out of guilt slinks away
when shown desire

thwarting strengthens a hull
she could’ve held in sway
unspoken lies find a voice to seduce
reliant on natural awe
in contentment’s disarray
while her fate is outlying

nature drives a wave
one end’s up and one end’s down
while the water is much the same
tho a mile as the crow flies
it’s one mile up and one mile down
til she gets to the other side

love is a beautiful waste
when selfishness pervades
over war over lunch over you
ideals’ll dissipate
ambition a quiet wait
ok whatever, she’ll leave
