tryst

in an obsidian daze she led me
our palms open eyes black
we eloped into the dark
we fell far away together

tethered then un-tethered
to the unthinking symmetric drift
of waters singing silent
infinitely deep
forever forgotten
never spoken
far
fear hearted
unseen
unloosed
unriven

her larval heart a silhouette in love's hidden form
and this pump
with splintered rhythmic half greetings
concealed in the deep
and then borne away on her neap tide
