Sea-Me

2008

Our shadows are taller than ourselves. 

Natalie Clifford Barney

Night Light

 

 

Rose-warm light spreads

Unbounded

Over sea, sky, land.

 

Your eyes find me

Unclothed

Mouth on mouth

 

Ranging

Fingers in petal softness

Fire desire.

Fragment

 

 

Like a shell 

On the beach

I enclosed

My self

 

Isolate

Whole

Contained

 

But you searched

Me out

Uncovered

Laid me bare

 

In love

Complex

A part.

Dream on

 

 

Rapt

In your soft

Perfumed presence,

My senses

Sleep,

Breathing in

The dream

Of your oneness

With me,

But still

You walk

Away.
