Of the Wide Briny Sea

the soles of your feet became restless from running

we once ran away from the world

until you ran from me

never meant to wither me

i remembered our pinky promises under the moonlight

and how you once said my eyes were full of "escapism and femininity"

did you think those things when my hair slithered around your body?

did you learn nothing is more delicate than a woman's hollow gaze?

eyes green, now filled with envy

envious of them who love you

never look unless i go to Rome

let them criticize the way i embraced you

never praised for turning you into stone

but merely Bernini who found you and commanded you art

valley sunsets are the only thing that doesn't subdue me

never did i think when you forgot my origin

i would learn mine
