originally published in Rhythm N Bones Lit Love Issue 6


I love you, as the ocean loves the moon. 
Tireless, natural as the tide,
This endless pursuit.

Our ephemeral twilight closeness.
The briefest kiss before I watch you soar,
Reflecting your distant beauty a thousand times,
In mirror shards that hypnotise the stars.

Descent from your cathedral in the sky.
Shed your skin, swim with me for a night.

Immerse yourself in my devotion.
Love me, as the moon loves the ocean.
