My ear pressed upon your breast
Soothing rhythmic inhalations
Support the thunderous bass of your heart.
Beautiful, like distant music,
Heard, say, underneath a rugged sea.
Vibrations dampened, yet not so difficult to hear.
Water molecules translating sound into emotion,
Swirling around in love’s death dance,
Synchronizing our breath, our beats.
Let the tempestuous me
and the gentle one
lay upon your breast.
