The Night the Storm Came

The night the storm came
We were not prepared
The sails were fortified
and the timbre treated
But the storm came
and it blew you into my arms
Your every kiss crashed down on me
but your face hidden
your gaze locked away

I stood steadfast
feet dug into the sea floor
accepting every wave
like this is my trade
I wrapped my hands around your face
but your face hidden
your gaze locked away

Warmth rising from the broken planks
As I laid my hands on your flesh
The blood in my limbs still alert
I challenged yours with my nose
asking to see the face of the storm
but your face hidden
your gaze locked away.
