Oh to dwell within this moment of total surrender.

The waters are tumultuous, yet so warm and tender.

The waters of our love are dark and so very deep.

There is no crawling out for the banks are so steep.


Each time I envision you, I am caught in the undertow.

Escape, fruitless; I must simply ride the ebb and flow.

I surface for air, only to be pulled under again.

Unable to escape, so inside the whirlpool, I remain.


Waves crash over and the sea billows roll.

Wrenching my body, the waves take their toll.

 The undertow is strong.  Im unable to catch my breath.

Yet I want to drink in more and my lungs fill with death.


My body now begins to loose control.

I am prepared to relinquish my soul.

 So here am I, drowning in the wonderful sea of love.

A better way to go down has never been dreamed of.



Author's Notes:
This was a work in progress for some time...  I've learned, if you become stymied, put it to the side for a while and eventually the lightbulb will turn on...  :)

Isn't if funny how some poems come complete in our minds, and then others come to us in bits and pieces?  This was well worth the time it took to write it.  And well worth my time to read it again.
