Your ears, lying down listening to mute starfish at the shore,
filled with the salty sea, wiping away your sweat.
Come into the ocean as you are.
She won't disbelieve, will never take you for granted;
swallowed up whole, skin and bone,
the water fills your eyes, wipes away your soul.
My ears, up against the surface waiting for your last breath,
coveting beneath her, a locked chest by chains.
Come into my heart as you are.
I will never forget, won't let you slip for lesser curses;
feed upon my whole, last of me,
the water fills my touch, wipes away my fright.
Our ears, against each other like speechless deep sea fish.
And just like that, calm river and raging ocean,
you come to take what's yours.
