this is what happens when you’re in love

dark poetry love

you feel like an ocean
in my arms a tidal wave

I have been surfing on
summer since you

found me black shadowed
after trekking winter’s
long desert

waiting for you to
hyphenate me with

your time and your precious
cargo down below a

vacant heart at the time
but now is a roaring lion

ready to claim
this undiscovered body

prepared for your arrival.
