At Ease

Lose control and step out of the trenches
Abandon your responsibilities
And give in to your darkest needs
Your desires don’t have to make sense
The fact that you want what you want this is all that matters.

Stand at ease, Soldier.

Relax and explore
The depths and shores of me
Traverse and conquer
Or be conquered, if that’s what you crave.

Walk the edge with bare feet
Absorb and devour
Drift in and dissipate
Wade into my waters
I dare you
Make ripples
Make waves
Submerge until you need gills to breathe.
