Your breath is an ocean
Held to my ear
It pulls at me like a riptide
Before placing me safely to shore
The silence before the wave
Is full of knowing and nothing
How is it you sing a timeless current
And I instantly know the chorus?
Still…I sing along with the eternal ebb and flow
Of your gravitational wave
An intertidal ballad
Of truth and balance
I am stripped bare by the collision and
…….it takes a while to know
That I’m waving, not drowning.
Proudly, I high five myself on the way back…
Forever merged with you.
