I was fine until you held my eyes with your own
For a moment too long.
Then I was once again pulled under
And pulled away--
Caught in a riptide of longing
I fight once again not to drown in that gaze
Nor be carried out to that ocean
Gasping for air and begging
But I fight against my own desire
To sink into the depths of that gaze
I know if I just relax and let go
I will find my way back.
Reality has as much beauty.
