As my shame

Poem by Marc Aupiais

On stranger tides,
Has life been been!
In stranger ways!
The heart does seem!

And I break and break!
Like ocean waves!

I see in truth,
My foolish ways!
My heart believes!
It always has!
Yet what good is belief?
What does it achieve?

I am either on the edge of madness,
Or the rim of dearest truth!

No, I am not!

I look at my compass pointing north!
And I see the world!
Pointing north!

And I wonder at my words,
My love!
With shame!

I regret it now!
With great shame!

Like waves breaking!
Breaking my name!

I pray and beg!
But I love!
Though I feel ashamed!
