If one more day rises the final wave

drink the sea

find me here

exhaling all that held my breath

without you


And if I lose all

it was only a boat that drifted

crashing one hope after another

for this


Living waters without the shore

love without capsize

hope drowning privation

as your spirit unites


If another day brings the flood

siphon it with lips

spit it out beneath my feet

teaching me about life beyond

the thirsting


On the third day

you formed the liquid soul

then made eternal


for those captive in the storm


Still me

save me from this abyssal dissipation

always looking for land

when you call me to

walk on water
