Your breath is an ocean

Held to my ear

The want

The pressure

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.
