Sinking

I close my eyes
and lie back, float

slowly down into a sea
of you, your arms,

your body wrapping around me
like waves pulling me in,

enveloping me in a
quiet, peaceful death,

like home, like comfort,
weightless, silent but for

a heartbeat.
I sink into you

until we can’t be told
one from another–

I am just a part of you,
suspended.
