Not Quite Sure

There is a hidden warmth in you
you do not show to others
and it pulls me under
like quick sand.

Or maybe it is the movement
of the sands that embalms
my body and carves out a
sinking place for it.

Or quite possibly the sands
are a prison holding my
body as it lays me down
waiting to drown as
the wicked seas overwhelm.

Or maybe I am at the helm,
I am sitting out far inside
the seas, I am waiting to
be brought ashore
I am waiting

Or I wait no more.
I am not quite sure.
