my heart swells with a spectrum of emotions
and then pushes everything out, full tilt

i want to be encompassed by you
i want to be the granular sand
and the abandoned shells
the mermaid tears
and crab carcasses
that are scattered across the beach
and for you to be the salty, nauseating ocean that surrounds me
that smothers me
that drowns me

you are the ripe fruit
that i desperately crave to nurish myself
you are the sweet juice on my tastebuds
the refreshing tingling
you are the nectar i search for, endlessly

my heart pulls in salty, nauseating ocean
and releases it just the same
