I Would Have Done it All

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.
