We were burnt
Into frozen a s h e s
Within your dead eyes.
She was born to the sea
Betwixt and between the waves and the cliff face;
Borne to those caught in eternity
Of tumultuous passions, cold and blue.
It was to the sea we delivered her,
When long since departed, she had been;
Back to her sweetheart and silence
And the dark water below.
It’s the stripping of air from our lungs that makes us GASP!;
Ligatures that flow and kiss
Even as they bite.
And the darkness is soothing when it takes us
And we descend
And breathe once more.
We never felt a thing until your frozen hands reaching
Pulled us underground to find peace
Among those lifeless and insect.
