my eyes are oceans
and the tides are rising
drawn by your moon-like syllables
my eyelashes are frail dams
at the brink of shattering
caused by your tormented tongue
your wicked words
protesting against
the barricades of your teeth
although they escape anyway
fabricating tsunamis
that wrack havoc on the shores
of my mind
shredding my boat of sanity
hurling pieces of me
into the ultramarine void
lost at sea
my lead feet drag me deeper
into the ocean of your voice
your grip gets tighter
with every pull back to seaboard
the rope on your lifebuoy strangles me
my twig arms splinter
with every desperate stroke
trying to abscond
from your burning touch
nevertheless I can’t swim
