    ~Even now
    it's raining...
    black clouds
    crying on
    my world...
    feeding the river
    ~in me
    channels already
    swollen
    with possible
    meanings...
    overflow with solid
    ~eloquence...
    every word uttered
    displaces
    doubt
    -only to be
    knocked
    loose
    to feed barriers
    of
    past
    wreckage...

    ~a dam is forming-

    forcing me to
    sift through
    early morning
    prose pitched
    into the depths
    of me...

    ~could this be ?

    ...where freshwater
    meets salt,
    ~ I CAN
    see/sea
    the
    sea/see...

    My vision
    grows...
    -rising
    with
    ~the River
    feeding a

    ~Sea of possibilities

    I sail /swim/ sink

    and journey
    to the

    brink....

    finally

    ~gladly.

    Mmmmmmmmmm. Mmmmmm. Mmmmm.

    I simply want
    to be the
    love song of the
    sea/see
    what I want is
    to have my
    name

    d
    a
    n
    g
    l
    e

    from your two
    soft lips

    UNITED
    from being parted
    on the
    cold and lonely
    sea that
    separates

    YOU

    ~~~~~~~~

    I

    Unfiltered

    yet burning at the
    end the beginning

    For
    Ever

    at your lips
    my dreams
    on the
    tip of your
    tidal tongue wave

    Don't swallow my
    hopes...

    SEE

    Yes ... To Sea/
    see the see/
    Sea

    You breathe clouds
    of mystery
    once mine

    smoke signals
    of another lifetime

    and after the
    smoke
    and
    mirrors
    clear the water
    -- the flames
    that others
    thought would
    have dissolved
    into thin
    air ...
    well, see, I am still .... there

    dancing joyously on top of
    that same sea/that you see
    for it was the wind
    that brought me
    safely to See the See
    ....

    feel me?

    (swim swiftly journeyman
    ...stay on course...
    the tide is rising)


    :wink:

    One Luv
    Two :heart:'s
