Love by Sea

love by sea
the sponge of my love
absorbed to capacity
you’ve swallowed me
the salty sea blows

climbs through broken nostrils
drunken veins
sharing bleeding jewelled hearts

broken tangled bodies
binds like veins
caress hollows
built soft houses
breathing with memory
stone upon stone

the fragrant wind trickles
savoury with steps
like cold watermelons
on warm days

aging sand dunes
scattered below the living
plant their seeds
like dandelions on seabeds

we kiss; seal hollows
with love
in our duelling perspectives

but now i lay
crooked upon shards
prickly pieces that
no longer contain
miniature lives within

i squeeze out
my absorption
sorrow with blackened tears and taste
washing blank in the vast ocean

i am a sponge
you've washed me dry
tiding away love
sending back stones
left to be built once more
