Last night I dreamt that you were the ocean and you were the sky.
I wanted to fall into your heavens
and rise from your depths.
I wanted to be your sun and I wanted to be your moon.
I wanted to be there late at night
when no one was there
to see the waves transform you
into something indistinguishable.
I wanted to be a single
raindrop caught in your eyelashes.
I wanted to be a grain of sand on the shore,
and feel you drown me in promises of a better tomorrow.
I wanted to live on the horizon,
and feel enveloped by sky and water.
God, I wanted you.
Every bit of you.
I wanted to know who you were in front of strangers,
I wanted to know who you were in front of your family
and I wanted to know who you were in front of yourself,
when you couldn’t recognize the face in the mirror
or how it arrived there.
