That night your eyes
Pierced through something thicker than blood
The immediacy of their blueness
Trembling my heart
And rusted footprints on windy piers
Still write themselves upon my pages
That night your breath
Warmed the insides of my wrists
And the depths of my hands
You taught me not to fear again
You kissed my scars like you knew their pain
And held my thoughts like the red-orange sand
Between our toes and in my shoes
And in ten thousand raindrops
From which we ran
I held you close and closed my eyes
Against the storm and against the tide
Desperately trying to keep warm
From oceans past and the presence of time
I see your face whenever I close my eyes
Remembering those August nights
Blistered from the sun and
Salty with the ocean’s kiss
We lost track of the future when we surrendered to bliss
