When I was with you
We were an estuary
I don't know if I come
For the river
Or for the sea
All I know is you are
Both my opposite
And my reflection
And where we meet
All salt
And mouths
And convergence

We were the meeting point
Of a mountain
And a valley
From a distance it is clear
That we are inverted forms
Of one another
Should our mountain crumble
It would fill the valley
To our brim
Creating flatland
Where there was once chaos
But until that beautiful collapse
We wonder where you begin
And I end
We were two bodies
Running our of room in this world
We carved space for ourselves
For the other to borrow
For the other to burrow

I wake up sometimes
With ghost traces
Of your lips on my bones
And my arms holding
Your phantom frame
As you drift away
We were roots
In soil
The splendor of a tidepool
We were giants
But for now we can't swallow
The things that seperate us

Please grab me again
By the scruff of my neck
And lick the wounds I've made
Trying to taste my own blood
