The Ocean

In the acceleration
It’s dangerous to associate yourself
With those who still believe they are a lone wolf
If you’ve not yet perceived that
Dreams exist in the water between us
You’re in the lonely desert
Creating mirages in your thirst
Aging in the sun
While we splash and bounce in each other’s ripples
The whole world will be underwater soon
And you’ll adapt or die
I did not leave to howl at the moon
I ran back to dive into the ocean
The place we’d visit each night
The abundant source that tosses me around when I fight and carries me when I’m tired
I wanted to be enveloped
Held entirely
and without reservation
