Thinks & Inks

By @astrid_hartman

Fluid Love

He loved her 

The way 

The ocean loves the sand,

Never fully committing,

Keeping her satisfied 

By washing over her little by little

But when he was angry,

He crashed down upon her,

Taking great chunks of her

Back with him 

To the depths of the sea 

He was either crystal clear calm

Or broodingly grey,

Murky and dangerous,

He could never fulfill

Her desire 

Of having him completely to herself.

He was fluid, 

She could never fully grasp

Who he was,

The real him.

He never barred her 

The depths of his soul

Because the sand only ever sees

The surface of the ocean…
