Boundaries

So beautiful,

Such tenderness,

The complex simplicity in her smile,

The shattered wholeness in her eyes;

Her intense heat surges in flames only to leave my heart in ashes.

I am drowned in her vastness; her soft fears turning, forming currents beneath the surface,

I feel them:

Pushing, pulling, tugging …harder, stronger;

Surging and yet under the surface, it remains,

Leaving her feeling empty inside.

Her sea is raging, surging;

Strong and powerful,

With a potential which is currently unknown to the world;

With a view that may never be seen;

Racking the shore desperately breaking,

Screaming with a burning desire to be freed.

But no matter how loud, her screams are not heard.

They are blended with the subtle sounds of the waves,

But roar nonetheless.

She roars, wanting terribly to allow herself to be freed,

But she has trained herself to hold back;

She dares not even dream of her freedom out of the fear of waking up.

I am drowned in her fear which stirs in a vast sea:

Rages, rages beneath in flames,

Touching the surface only to subside as the currents overpower them;

But I feel as if they are reaching out to me,

Grazing my skin just enough to make their presence known,

But not enough to burn.
