Merlin

Prince and Snail
If I say the words out loud
Can you hear me, my love?
Maybe if I was a Merlin
For just a day
I could dissolve all my meaning
Deep into your consciousness
Like all the salt in the ocean
And, you won’t need ears anymore
To hear the waves howling my name
As they crash into your sunken chest
You won’t need eyes anymore
To finally believe in mermaids
In something other than yourself
For just a minute
To save you from drowning in the blue
And, you will find my doorstep
Like a man yearning for divine grace
Surrendering to something beyond
Or like Columbus searching for India
Waving a white flag
To discover your lucky fortune

But, if I don’t say the words out loud
Can you still hear me, my love?
