Drowned In Dreams - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

My hands dived
into your hair
like a deep red river
flowing over your body

my hands
fishes
swimming over
the coral reefs of your breasts

the hidden underwater
world of your body
plunging into
an abyss

the deep infinity
of your self
drowned in the dream
of you
hoping never to awake
