untitled [07022014]



the sea is my lover
the one who i sink in
in arms not warm but cold
er than jack frost nipping my nose
and i can feel the frostbite
settling in, and i can feel myself numbing
blissfully so
as i forget everything but the water
wrapping around me
surrounding me
swallowing me whole
until i am nothing more
than the sea




help, i am cracking 
breaking, splitting at the seams
right under your gaze

not-so-careful and
turned toward the deep, dark ocean
fathomless, like you
