An Uncommon State of Drowning
By Julia Maureen K. (year unknown)

I swim in the milk of your skin
drinking air off the surface.
Your pooling eyes keep me drowned and
breathless.
I sink to the bottom of your mind
eavesdropping on unspoken daydreams
and tinted observations.
The current rushes in.

Your soothing words of affection
keep me under the influence
and I am taken away with each touch of the salt
and imploding sea of your voice.
With the touch of your fingers at my back
I am taken into the unavoidable.
