Ship To Shore

We are ship to shore
me a lighthouse
adoring
and you bobbing up and down,
back and forth
on the waves
teasing
you glide effortlessly,
exploring the depth of blue
waters,
zigzag over hot currents
coasting past coral reefs

I want to reel you in
though you need
no mooring, no anchor
instead you set off
your sudden impulse
to chart a course, to weather
and brave monsoons,
in search of the pearl
in your life.

we are ship to shore
but can’t you see?
the wind will cast you away
the ocean might swallow you
whole
if I let go

we will become severed

your spirit
will be free.
