To know intimately
I close my eyes to feel
Playing on the specific strings that -
-remind me what the weight of water is
I close my eyes to hear
Liquid drums carefully beating
To a melody always worth repeating
But lost in moments that are painfully fleeting
I close my eyes to know
The intimate intrusion of the wind
Wet and heavy as it soaks my soul
And it reminds me of when...
...I closed my eyes mid-wave
And hid inside the Atlantic rain.
