Master Oceanus

I will speak not of my woes
nor the hairline fractures in my heart
for when I am beside you I am whole.

With the sun & the wind as my guide and compass
I will walk by you and abide by you
I am yours, for you are within my blood.

You sting in my eyes, saline as tears
this thunderation of your voice echoing in my ears
your breath mine, gasping to life.
