Irish Sea

The waves carry you and I to meet

each creeps a little closer to my feet


                              I am waiting inside the rain for you.*

I retreat, stung by approaching tide

I turn my back and try to hide


                            The blistered, bitter rain that engulfs me.*

Hopelessly pulled back, my mind

succumbs to salty kisses entwined


                             I am drenched by your love,*

Turn again with depth and force

of emotion from tempestuous source


                            untamed waves rear up and smash*

Thrown up, storm torn and broken

an inevitable part of loves token


                             against the cruel rocks of time.*


Crashing a backspray rainbow

Lapsed momentum in your undertow


                                            And I will ride the tide,*


Come back again and smooth me round

to just the way I was first found


                                        Until the water takes me.*


Honour my heart into sandy grain

and wash away this endless pain



* Anthony 2011
