Full moon high overhead
I lay here in my rocking bed
Waiting, Watching as I do
Listening to the sleeping crew

Waves crash upon the shore
A gentle tapping at my door
Sea fresh air enters my room
Dispersing the dark lonely gloom

Deck sways back and fro
A creaking sound heard from below
Dark specter hovers close
In her hand a single rose

Soft petals touch my face
In it's path pains erased
The weight of her sends my bed rocking
I wonder if she hears my heart knocking

Pressure from her lips on mine
The scent of her so divine
Feeling Passions storm aroused
In this body deeply housed

Too soon the tide comes in
Hearing the topside din
I must release her, this I know
For out to sea I have to go

Although Captain of my fate I be
From her embrace I'm never free
Long nights her memory I remember
Of rose petals in late September

Haunting is the perfect way to describe this poem! A well told tale, also.
