birthday present

water is my air 
i breathe it in 
it’s you.

i’m drowning in an ocean of love and heartache and tears that never come 

and you’re all that

then some. 

we play
in the wetness of the ocean

a pleasant death 

it’s pulling and pushing 
on tides of foreverness 

we speak about it all

just around the edge along the shoreline of the everything we’re dying to say


it stains

blood red the tips of our tongues. 

we lick. 

how can it be you’ve had my heart this whole time

my whole life 




maybe now i see a little clearer all i have to learn from love and loving you.
