Your Coral
Seanote

I want to drown
 1
in your arms
 2
feel your ocean
 3
consume me whole
 4
cold and deep
 5
I will let your coral
 6
gash my chest
 7
my frozen breast open
 8
to spill my heart
 9
and soul across the floor
 10
like tiny jewels;
 11
a fabulous feast
 12
for the snakes and bees.
 13
And when the end comes
 14
in the form of holy loneliness
 15
they will bow and scoop me
 16
up into their arms
 17
and bring me home
 18
to a familiar stone;
 19
an altar near the fire
 20
that once embraced
 21
me
 22
