ripples
by mike keith hall

ocean of ecstasy...
I have
somehow
survived you

pulled under...
I have held my breath
waiting
for you to tire
of toying with me

your waves
hold no terror
if I surrender...
I will take all you have
and survive

but
the ripples...
the beginnings...
when passion
begins to
trouble the waters

or
the aftermath...
muscles twitching
every sense
fully aware
of how vulnerable
I really am

and
the unbelievable
sense of frustration...
of my lover
seeing me this way

what irony!
to conquer the ocean...
only
to drown
in the ripples!
