Blind


Blind

I sublimated myself beneath
as the waves burned a shroud around you
I taste the salt on your heel as you raise earth
above water.  My words are burdened with longing
too weighted to reach your ears. I  split my tongue
to breathe your world, but you speak an alphabet  
of bondage, and set your feet against the crown
of my love.

***

I press each letter against your skin
Each sigh a hollow anchor.
I bind you to my bones,  
bind you to my shadow. So, will I protect you
from the shattering stones, though you never
lower yourself to me.
