Footprints where the greedy mouth of shore has failed

To claim more than a pair of heels but shoulders and hips as well

Leaving sandy lips parted in shock

Trail like lipstick stains until they smudge and vanish

Hidden by the sea's soft collar of white frills.

Submerged in a velvety indigo cloak

Four hands reach into blissful blindness.

Bones tremble as chilled moonlight rains upon

Shining out into porcelain skin

Flush with butterfly kisses and brushes.

A glossy bubble floats between them

One breath to cradle all the words

They will never say under the sun.
