when you meet me... hush my love, don't tell me that this depth makes you afraid. that my voice is like a siren singing on an ocean of words. a whirlpool pulling you under where no light can shine with grace.
your crashing heart is for you to cherish tenderly.
in my arms, you will cyclone to the very bottom of your soul. my arms are here to hold you while your heartship splinters and cracks on its spiraling downward journey.
in my arms, you and I will feel it all.
and when it is all over, when stillness prevails...
from the crumbling shipwreck you will be born anew.
a mermaid swimming through the ethereal waters of her soul. Rising up, up, up to break the surface drinking her first sweet sip of salty air...
searching for the land she once remembered in a time now lost.
when you meet me... tell me that my arms are as vast as the horizon, that they are the very water you breathe holding you through all your waves and ire.
when you meet me... tell me that my eyes are like the night sky, that their depth holds the whole universe within a twinkling facade.
when you meet me... when you meet me... when you meet me...
