Vessel

V

i am sleeping in an ocean
that reminds me of your hands

hands that hold me like a vessel,
fill me with their love,
hands that linger in the tangles
of my hair,
like a ship caught sailing into a net

i drown in the waves of the night
as i think about
your embrace, encompassing me
like water running to land

i am asleep in an ocean,
completely submerged
in the way you call this sinking feeling love

i come to you like the phases of the moon,
