What You Are

You are a beautiful, sorrowful song
on the edge of my tongue
groaning to be heard
sighing to be sung

You are a restless ocean
beating at my shore
and I may be the ship that sunk
deep on your ocean floor

You’re a book of a thousand pages
over every word I’ll pour
until at night I drift to sleep
but wake up needing more

You are the morning rain that falls
outside my window, weeping
waking up the senses in my body,
warm from sleeping

You are the trap I’ve fallen through
I’m tangled in your skin
with every taste and touch and breath
I’m sinking deeper in.

What You Are
