Ebb Tides

by Beulah Gordon-Skinner

He looks at her and sees the pain 
of yesterday's existence.  
As her eyes reflect the darkness 
of his illicit past
his emotions crest and ebb 
like the tides
along the sandy shore.  
When he can look 
no more he walks away, 
recalling her eyes'
reflection of the stranger 
he'd become,
knowing he's no longer the 
Adam in her garden.
