I nestle

I nestle close to your breast I desire to hear
life’s mystery warmth like light reveals
the inner sense of quietude you suffer with
I listen to your regular heartbeat and I seem
to be a castaway on shore – one by one I am
battered by the waves of your silent words
and pushing me father and farther into the deep
of the unknown land, away from the depths
of your soul
