Can I Not Be - Poem by James McLain

But now that i am,
how can i not be lost in you?
And upon that star, the first we all see.
Looking up and we meet, 'yet, i rise.

And all through my heart the oceans warm breeze.
And tell me your truth,
does it to you, bleed unto you a 'whisper?
And how do i feel, when it leaves me alone.

May i long to you ask do i know,
as the waves wash all around me.
Pulling me in,
as the green foam surrounds me.

Tell me, then of sweet mercy, pray tell me.
My feet walking on wet sand, slowly in.
why the undertow seeks to play,
and tell me again 'dear' why you tease me.
