fire on water, this
longing, indelible,
this songstorm,
stark, celestial

held by night, this
longing, immutable,
this heart-stop,
breathless, steep

no going back, this
loss of reason, vertigo,
where to go, this ocean-dark,
no less, timeless,
torn asunder

Icarus or not, this
love, unstoppable,
exalted in ether,
transformed, impossible
to say, say this
