Everything Is You
Warmth and light are wrapped up in your shell,
Your body. And a beautiful shell it is.
Darkness meets pale, like moon and midnight,
A mirror, a foretaste of what waits within--
A fire, a shadow, a light, a sea.
Touching you is like touching clouds
Or waves or stars--you're so real, so there,
So warm, yet otherworldly, like
The look in your eyes when you see,
When you feel. And so often, you feel.
So take all I am and I give it
To you. I cannot be without the
Power of your heart devouring my soul,
The fiery waters of what is you
Drowning me so pleasantly, the way
I want it to be. Everything is you--
Night sky and stars, storm clouds with thunder,
And the wild, restless sea--ever the sea, especially the sea,
As restless as you, reaching out
To break down the sandy walls around my heart.
