Travelling

by valentinestavrou

My body,

a vessel

carrying within it

love, lust and wisdom

feelings, images and words.

I will take it

across oceans;

share the world with it

and you.

Sleep with it at night,

wearing your breaths

as a garment weaved for my skin only.

My talisman of love,

I promise to keep it a cave for your arms

your shed for when you need one.

Hold my hand tight, hear my truth

lock your eyes in mine;

your vessel and mine, travelling

through turmoil and

calm seas,

side by side,

cannot sink.

Our experiences will float

amongst waves.

I was wrong; a storn sunk it down.

The remnants are yet to be found.
