for Jeff, the only ocean I ever want to be lost in

Drowning in the icy blue
   makes me feel most alive
Intense sensations here with you
   in ever deeper dive

You overwhelm defenses
   and wash away the mess
You engulf me with your presence
   submerged in sweet caress

Knowing my attempts to swim
   are swept up in desire
Carried on current's every whim
   and waving ever higher

You beckon me to come to you
   to rest within your gaze
I float into your arms subdued
   anchored safely here -- amazed
