Watery Dreams In A Midsummer Night

byLauren Hynde©

Last night I was awoken by your kiss.
You were drifting through the vast Sea
Whilst I waited by our little mountain brook.
I ran the riverside to the edge of the land
Until I saw you singing in your castle of sand,
"I was once a mermaid, and now I'm a gull."
I laughed at you "Then why don't you fly?"
And then you stared, and then you smiled,
You opened your window and flew away.

Last night I went for a walk on the Ocean
The shine of the moon guiding my steps.
Arriving at the open sea, the world broke in two.
I looked thought the water to watch you sleep,
Missed the ground and sunk beneath.
The Moon was lost, darkened through water.
Between the algae I saw your hair floating.
And then we spoke, and then we said
"Down here we can live forever in one night".

Last night a colossal dam crumbled down.
Through the gushing gap my heart escaped.
I saw you knitting windows from teardrops,
Windows through which to spy on me.
I approached you and whispered "Hello!"
Touching your shoulder, left a wet handprint,
As the moon came crashing amidst the waves.
And then you stared, and then you smiled,
You said "I'm glad you flooded back to me".
