Sometimes I close my eyes, Just to see the great ocean that rocks inside of me; The rolling tide filling my chest Cresting over my heart Spilling through my eyes And saturating my upturned palms. I catch your spirit there, And sometimes imagined scenes:
You and me, In the half light of dusk In the light winds of spring Alone but for the flutter of wings That is really my heart, Beating wildly Against your chest. Close enough to feel your breath Along my neck. Can you feel my tides rise, My rhythm quicken? Always you Stirring these waves of desire, Churning my waters Into fire.
Sometimes I close my eyes Just to hear the music of the sea birds Soaring and dipping to the surface, Which is now like glass Held motionless by your enveloping warmth Held still by your unfaltering strength The waves calmed; The birdsong of my soul free at last.
This ocean is mine But you carry its depths in your palms And when I close my eyes Only you can release Its power. Crash with me like these waves beneath the stars. Close your eyes now. I am yours.
