The Bittersweet Unfolding of You & Me.


Peeling away, peeling away, peeling it all away

What remains

Under layers of dry, dead skin

Is living beauty.

You and me,

Uncertain, swirling in the wide open sea

Sunburnt faces

Cracked lips

And stubborn hearts. 

The only land we see 

Is the forest of our fears. 

We are shrouded in the thick brush of uncertainty

Not knowing, not knowing, not needing to know---

We smile

And dance in foamy ocean waves

Of salty mystery 

With secret tears

Sparkling, like diamonds

In our eyes.
