drowning in you

A poem that came to me after watching one of the many versions of a movie based on the novel Jane Eyre. Still trying to decide which movie version is my favorite.

drowning in you

drowning inside of you
here in this room
there is nothing I can do
as I sink down and down
into the warmth of familiar depths
while outside the uneasy breeze
stirs the leaves of the maple trees
moving in time to an ancient song
remembered only by these decaying
burned out walls
roaming over the green hills
down through the meadows
the wind ebbs and flows
feeling around
achingly slow
gently exploring
touching everything
with hands unseen
it sighs in the night
slipping in
again and again
it whispers your name
in a world weary tongue
strong and clear and chaste
as my new life begins
in this moment in time
one true moment
everything is turning
the world
my head
this bed
looking back
I see the man I was
disappearing in the distance
smiling and waving
wishing me well
calling out to me
have a good journey
I can go no further
you must continue on from here without me
just as one day
the man I am now
will do to the man I become
