The Ocean of You

Nice, France, 2011.

Nice, France, 2011.

Do you feel sadness
each time when you see
the ebb and flow of longing waves
for a shore that never could stay?

Do tears of mine
that have yet to flow
wait in small lagoons, or exist
in your trickling streams?

You are the water
quenching my verses.
I am underwater
creating inadvertent currents.

The ocean of you
surrounds the island of me.
I, forever landlocked,
with you, freeing me.
