mor(n)ing coffee

i dreamt

in that dream
i was
a turtle
on the beach
sea foam
condensed
in my
negative spaces

i was
an albatross
watching down
over a
rocky beach
with
a turtle
slowly
dissipating
back to
the salt

i was
the wind
underneath
the great
wings
a thermal
keeping the
albatross
afloat
for months
at a time

i am the
boulder
i am the
torment
i am the
sinew
and i am
the grit

i dreamt

in that dream
i was
in your embrace
you were
my shell
my protection
you watched
over me
kept me afloat

in that dream
i dreamt
i knew
you were always
the light

and when
i woke
i whispered
i had
found myself
and knew
with no
reservations
in finding me
i had become
something more
i had become
yours
and yours alone
