far beyond the mask

and wonder at the questions

that you’re too afraid to ask.


Gloriously gazing

into depths of deep emotion,

currents running deep

within a cool and placid ocean.


Dive into the loving soul

of one who gives their all

and marvel at the feelings

that are waiting for the call.


Deliberately diving

into strong rolling waves,

risking all you have to give

for a lover, to save.


Drift along on the gentle flow

of loves deep warming spring,

exulting at the warm embrace

that begs your soul to sing.


Dreamily drifting

in waters that refresh,

you feel its teasing touch

upon your warm and tender flesh.


Swim far out to distant pools

and reach the hearts horizon,

wells of clear compassion

and a strength that’s so surprising.


Sensuously swimming

and content for evermore,

at peace with the heart and soul

of the one that you adore.

.                   .                      .

Melt into a soul-mates sweet

and tender smiling eyes,

never again will you feel the need

to wonder how or why.


All you see within those pools,

is all you could desire,

together let your souls fly free

and set the breeze on fire.


Let your hearts set the rhythm,

beating beneath the sun,

as songs of love and joy ring out,

new life has just begun.
