You Shall See Tonight I'll take you out at sea And you shall see the moon Shimmering over its surface, You'll gently lay in my arms And I'll read to you a story You'll be looking up And all the bright stars shall smile at you Then, all of the deep sea creatures They'll swim up to us Bioluminescent and magnificent — Perhaps you'll caress one And it shall kiss your hand, I'll continue reading While sea foams enter your mouth And after salt shall dissolve on your tongue Your mouth shall become the beach On which I shall lay to read And sleep and dream Tonight I'll take you out at sea And you'll see this vast territory Extending itself wide and far Finishing at the horizon line — You'll want to go there To swim as far as your eyes can see But I'll kiss you, ardently With my salty lips made of waves And you'll forget, you'll forget This want to escape, to be free Tonight I'll take you out at sea But this time I'll tell you something A tale, which it is, exactly, The whole sky shall be dark There'll be no light for you to see, The opaqueness shall engulf everything seen — Whole cities behind us The wild sea underneath us And the horizon in front of us, You will be afraid when you shall see But don't you forget that I'll be there On the beach, in your tongue There, when you shall see. -Eiravel-
Yesterday I was thinking about the ocean and its creatures, but also about the darkness that prevails on this vast moving space when the sky is dark at night, mainly during a lunar eclipse… and that’s how I was inspired to write this surrealistic poem. I haven’t changed the words that came to my mind when I actually imagine this scene — the stream of consciousness artistic type. Yep, I don’t even wanna know why the future tense, and why a beach in the mouth, or even who I’ll be taking out at sea tonight😅.
