I am rock, you water

Smoothed by the beat of your heart.

I am the moon, you the sun

Dulled by the light of your smile.

Wild horses run


Depressed footprints in the sand

Washed away.

Waves unyielding.

I grasp for you

Water cannot be held.

I call for you

Your wind swallows my voice.

Unearth me from the muddy shallow

A treasure begging to be found.

Come find me

On your shore.

But you never seek.

I alone play the game of children.
