Is there a place where we could go
where the sun is always just about to set?
I want to sit with you and watch a flaming ball
dip into the sea on a backdrop of dim stars that are just waking.
I could look at you and breathe air that smells like salt and vanilla and some unknown spice.
There would be a balcony where we would sit and I would be still
because the waves would act out all that is tumultuous within me
and pull it away into the sea.
Is there such a place for you and me?
