shouting about our love to the surprised sea,
just you and me,
alone with the rest of the world,
wind whipping around the sails of our own little love boat.
I haven’t fantasised about falling overboard since we met,
meeting my match, at last,
I decided to try living life at least half full,
dancing through dreams in the daytime,
serenading you in my sleep,
and finding that life is sweet, if you let it shock you.
I was shocked back to life,
after being dead for decades,
once at home in my grave,
I found that my fondness for you freed me from the prison I founded,
all the dirt I had drowned myself in,
all the nightmares I lived in,
just one kiss,
and I was clean again.
