Parting the seas

The tenderness

Is unspeakable.

However, it is tangible.

.

You pull me

Into the warm, satiated sea

.

You say you fall into trances easily.

So do i.

It’s in the nature of creatures like us.

.

But i’ve chosen to tread the bottom of the sea with my feet dry.

You swim.

You even had to swim in every lake we passed.

Somehow, i decided i’d rather part the seas and walk through them, upright, dry, and awake.

.

You dont walk with me. You wonder why my eyes stay open.

I dont swim with you: it’s too overflowing. I’ve learnt to associate it with a lack of discipline. Pethaps that’s Saturn in my brow.

.

Still, somehow we dance and wrestle with the waves.

.

Have i ever seen a being emerge from this same Ocean, minute by minute, second be second?
