Red bleeds across the blue sky which
Is in her eyes-an ocean set ablaze:
So deep and salty and fiery,
Her love washes over me with waves of
Warmth and soft, delicate kisses when the tide
Is low-and exquisitely so.
Shifts carry jagged rocks hurled ceaselessly at me-
and yet excruciatingly beautiful.
I pay my dues, and take in the bitter with the sweet
I’ve grown accustomed to the icy glare which
Somehow burns my soul.
I’m captivated by her shifting tides
Bewitched by the gall spewing from
Her perfect lips.
Days have never been brighter
And my chest never lighter.
And if I be a fool bound by blinding love,
Then this is how I’ll live out
The rest of my days.
