as the ocean

as the ocean


as the ocean throws himself upon the shore
he hopes this time, maybe this time, he’ll take hold.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
he hopes this time that the moon won’t call him home.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
his white-capped words are echoes at her feet.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
and he breaks and he breaks and he breaks,

i am breaking over you.

as the ocean throws himself upon the shore
he hopes this time, maybe this time, he’ll take hold.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
he hopes gravity and fate won’t call home.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
his white-capped words are breakers at her feet.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
and he breaks and he breaks and he breaks,

i am breaking over you.

***
night and moon and stars
hide the ocean from the shore
but
she can hear his distant roar
and know
his white-capped words are hers
and
she smiles,
in the pleasant dark,
waiting for the moon to let him go.
***

as the ocean throws himself upon the shore
he hopes this time, maybe this time, he’ll take hold.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
he hopes this time that the moon won’t call him home.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
his white-capped words are echoes at her feet.
as the ocean throws himself upon the shore,
and he breaks and he breaks and he breaks,

i am breaking over you.
