In the Shallows of Desire


In the Shallows of Desire

In dreams I run wildly

With each breath I take

In every expectant moment

My heart is pounding

I hear it echo

Over and over

As the night

Descends into morning

Dawn flows in

Like wine

Pouring crimson and gold

Into the inky night

It fills me up

To overflowing

And I am drifting

Downwards

Awakening

Fathoms deep

In the shallows

Of desire
