with your salt water touch
I feel the day dissolving
into pink roses and orange blossoms
when the sun melts away
your cool hands will carry me
deeper into the ocean
where the water turns inky black
and swallows every star in the sky
Why I Wrote the Poem
If you’d like to hear a little more about what inspired me to write “wash me clean” feel free to check out this YouTube video I made about it. Watch till the end if you’d like to hear me read the poem aloud.
Thanks for being here. Thanks for listening. I’ll see you next time.
