Interstellar peace, catharsis by proxy;
a quiet juxtaposition, mimicking the galaxy’s distance.
Rocking waves lulling me to sleep,
Perplexing lullaby love, sung from bottomless water.
Melancholy desire: a loyal incentive
inhabiting the Ocean depths,
entrancing me to go as far as the Mariana Trench,
where, even as I drown, I would fly.
Enticing sleep, slowing heartbeat,
holding my breath and diving deep,
entering a happiness with the creatures beneath-
Sitting low and still in the moment.
Vivace love, aged coral; greying yet smiling.
Colour embracing me within the blue,
And colour farewelling me,
As time and heat scares away its truth.
Assiduous wonder, coastal devotion
For the water surrounding, ever growing with me.
Youth-born love, becoming mature appreciation
Of the Ocean’s loving proximity.
