I Know This Water…

I hear the ocean outside my window
Taunting me as I try to sleep
Calling me to the sandy edge

I know the sea too well
The salt that heals my body
Is the salt that burns my lips

I know my heart lies in its shoals
You can’t hear it beat over the sound of the waves
But it’s there, always there

With every swell that crashes on the shore
I want to be baptized
I want to be me
