In Latent Time

In latent time
We swim against the tide;
Under the gray
And frigid winds outside

You try to speak
But words just slip away;
The day is lost
Like what we want to say

The distant birds
Let out a mournful sound;
With slogging steps
We span the marshy ground

In latent time
We try to reach across
The span that separates
Our love from what
We’ve lost
