We stood by the ocean. As sand caressed our skin I could taste you and the salt on my lips. The tides kept on turning. My body was yearning to be closer to you than it had been. Let's sink down together. The beaches kept footprints we left as we told all of our secret longings and desires. I stepped on a seashell, a small creatures previous home. The tracks I left became bloody. So you put me on your back and carried me so far. While I held onto you, you held me heart. Let's sink down together. Driving above landscapes. Suspended on bridges. I said I feel like I'm flying. Let us build a life in the sky here with clouds as our neighbors. You just shook your head and said It's time to come down. So let's sink down together. I was a child then. You needed a woman. Could not relish in my childlike fantasies. We drifted apart then without any reason. For love's not an age it is a mind-set. Let's sink down together. (I was a child. You needed a woman.) Let's sink down together.
