In Waves

In Waves

A Poem by df

She sung in waves
          that came crashing
       onto shores

                 of quiet sands.
                And the undertow swept
              quickly,
         dismantling balanced dunes,
   cutting through stone.
        She pulled me
                   into the depths
                         where the light
                              could no longer dance.
                                 Neptune blue 
                                  coursed through our veins
                                and sweet ambrosia
                              loved my arteries.
                           The Drowned Gods 
                     embraced me
            and my lungs made love
      to the salt of the sea.
                 Yet, I was
                       not blinded by depth.
                          My eyes saw as if
                      sodium did not burn them
                 and as if oxygen still
           coursed through my vasculature.
                     Gills I had formed,
                               maybe.
                                      They gave me strength
                                          to accompany her voice
                                           with sounds of
                                         my stringed instruments.
                                       I sang:
                  "I wish to
                              stay with my heart
                                  which has been
                                       lost
                                         to the sea."
