In my heart rises,
a wave so gigantic,
It sweeps everything off the coast and falls,
from my eyes onto my cheeks in an outburst.
I hold this sea inside my heart and let it create ripples through my body,
When on a misty morning you hold me by my waist as we stand overlooking the ocean,
lashing at our tiny feet:
a mismatch for the one I have been gathering in me;
a tsunami which carries with itself,
all my inhibitions and all my turbulences,
wanting to sink you in a whirlpool
and take you to the bottom.
Gulping for air,
You say it isn’t working anymore,
you and I: we should be done by now
for you think you’ve found the shore in someone else.
I look at her and smile.
I kept thinking that I was drowning you.
I see a raging storm that the best of the sailors would think twice before venturing into.
I see it in her eyes and I bring you up,
happy you survived this one,
mournful that she is a tempest stronger than me.
