The Drowning – A Love Poem

Wrap me in your
cold, gray arms
and let your
windswept shores
be a sandy haven
for my young heart.
Let me apart from
your sweet, clear kiss
for just one gasping,
desperate breath.

I’ve been by your
diamond bedside
all day, but now duty is
the lever moving my world.
Here is the sun;
Tuck it deep
into your pockets and
keep it safe
’til I return?

Call me back;
call me back!
Let your voice rise from the northeast
and foam and fury
and lash and spray
and call me back
to your icy, dark depths
which no mortal lover,
least of all me,
knows.
