|A man writing his dreams before the tide comes in.|
He should leave now. The tide is finished depositing what the ocean has discarded on this tide and is busy collecting the sun on the far. Among today's remnants a bottle, (no note inside,) and flotsam as far as he can see along the ocean's petticoat shoreline. Far off a dog is barking, and beyond that, his ruined kingdom and shoreline castle where he sits between the tides writing his love to the world. Love more satisfying than tongues entwined, bottom lips bitten, or hands holding hipbones. Some call him a loner, better that than lonely he would answer. If you could match his courage, learn his ways, and agree to let him carry you weightless through whatever it is you want, he'll one day show you Rome...show you Jupiter...sit with you on the rings of Saturn...and never once will you fear the fall. He'll take you beneath the waves and show you a world such as you've never seen before. Come then... tell him which way you want to travel? He's more than a whirlwind upon the shore, more than a man playing his fingers on pebbles and seashells; living in a ruined kingdom of dreams and fighting confusion with troubled answers. But beware, for you need the heart of a bull to know such a man, you need a bolt for his neck and a razor for the cavity in his throat, and when the time comes, when his eyebrows are shot together with fear and his breath becomes that of a dragon, then is the time you must end it for him. There is pain in knowing such a man, you walk the battlements of creative genius and all he can do is love you, love hot as lava and graceful as the willow. There's no hero on the shore, no knight on horseback, only a man writing his love in the sand; a man who knows how to run from anyone daring to love him as much he loves them. Tweet
