You are my sea

You are my sea
a lost lover
I abandoned my oars and compass
content to be guided
by your mysterious rhythms and stars.

At night I hear your voice
and, like a soldier,
I submit without calculation
to the battle of waves and foam
I am the rock
you break yourself against
until I fall into you
with burning skin
and thirsty heart
I open and
you fill me
in your coves
I dive deep
and become the life inside you.

The moon and tide
took you from me, my love
but I wait at your shore
for your inevitable return.
