Melt to Blue

the sun is strong
but melts to sea
she melts to blue
and me to you

to hop this fence
and slide the dunes
through the brush
and towards the moon

will lead me to the salty licks
of waves upon a beach
i wish to dive beneath and swim
--forever swim away.

i hurt to be here, stranded
murky, aching, cold
enduring tangled jeers
amidst a younger blood

if i leap to scale the deep
never tiring or turning my head
and if you mirror notions free
surrender to places unsaid

i will meet you past the stars
far from where we'd been
i will find you safe ashore
she'll rise and melt again.
