"I Drown Nightly" 
Rolling waves encircle, pulsing in snarling crests, 
the recoiling lips of oceanic wolves. 
They bare their teeth, and I can't close my eyes tightly enough.
They're redefining fear.

A predatory darkness salts adolescent wounds,
a writhing, swirling murk.
A truer death has found me,

it pierces doubt and body totally;
I am a lamb of this sea.

In peakless bounds they find the feet of the holy,
Heaven’s veil torn upon teeth.
The titans are worldless.
They're furious, and it's humbling.

I sit in the eye of crushing black.
I guard my ears -
I've always done that, even as a child.

Their arms find their way beneath my own, and they fold me into reaches I know nothing of:
mysteries unveiled through unparalleled aggression.

The things I see the deaf can hear -
if you only knew.

At the heart of it all, I do want this.
It's a torture not known to most.
I never sleep. I drown nightly.
