Beyond Flesh

Tidal waves rush over me
crashing inside my skull
washing through my mind
I am drowning, letting go

Beauty before me I have
never felt so enraptured by
the spell falling to the waves
natural seduction, helpless

Soft sands stretched arcs
receiving turquoise rippling
white laughter beneath the
wind caressing tender skin

Into paradise I will gladly
go hostage to my feelings
beyond the flesh under skin
waiting for gates to open.
