Electric in my dark

You creep in like an unanswered question,
Spilling into my quiet.
Rocking my calm
Your sea hands trawl my sands
To recover a heart
Sunk in redundancy.
Shocking like a Jellyfish,
Electric in my dark
Shark - like you invade,
Until I am yours devoured,
Undiluted, raw,
Washed up
Gasping on a gentle shore.

To catch your fall

Underneath an Armada of stars
That sing light
And lift my eyes to find yours,
In a tide of time,
I wait for you.
I'll bring you down 
On a gentle breeze
And soften the ground
To catch your fall.
