Before the night was frightened,
where the shine of a star meets the gaze of your eyes,
innocence is ever-closer.
My life pauses when you blink, as waves roll on.
A trumpet wails out a cry of hunger
drowning out the siren songs.
I fall from the clouds:
a helpless hurricane-vortex,
into a thunderous, freezing splash.
Absolved by her salt,
I drift under her surface.
Sky above blackens.
She disappears into black,
I keep sinking.
Fishes nibble and bigger fishes gnash,
a shark can’t believe his luck,
but they fade away
and lose interest
as I sink deeper,
of the last
