one another’s shore

the light pools at your feet
and drips between your toes
i’m standing far too far away
encumbered by too many clothes

i need to have your mouth on me
i’m taking in i’m almost there
my hands are shaking, i can see
the wake they’re leaving in the air

and we’ve rippled the water
in our search for each other
with nothing left to do but tread
and dread the thought of going under

rip into me and i will
ebb over you and we will
come together
crashing into
one another’s shore

you’ve permeated all my senses
filled my arms with salt embraces
buoy me against your body
raise me up, i’m growing heavy

and we’ve moved with the current
in our desperate torment
slick i slide along your skin
open up and let me in

rip into me and i will
ebb over you and we will
come together
crashing into
one another’s shore
