High Tide

High Tide
Form: Free Verse

she is the ocean
undulating emotions
to her shore
of my body
and in her rippling waves
she takes me to the ends of eternity
be I sand or shingle
her caress dances over my skin
and in my breathlessness
she lifts me higher
and higher
until I crash on some vague
distant horizon
and there I lie
clinging to the swirling shadow
as the salt of my tears
flow into her depths
fulfilling her need
until the demands
of the next high tide
and her desirous waves
break over me again
