and the splash reaches the Moon.
His light reflection
gently strokes the ripples on the water surface
and my body shivers.
I fight against the tide
But it's a battle I don't want to win
I allow the warmth of the wave to cover me
the current to consume me
I admit defeat
droplets caress my body
penetrate my thoughts
seep into my heart
seduce my sweet surrender
I am naked
exposed and free
I dance in the water
as I am carried away into the unknown
