Sometimes I close my eyes and think back to the time
When this all began to take over me and pull me in
Just like standing on the sandy warm beach and listening
As the waves bring the warm water over the toes and feet
Creating a thirst sensation that your body longs for more
And you know it won't be long before you give in
Just as the sand moves under your feet, the direction changes
And you find yourself torn between the reality of what is going on
But the desire and need to be drenched are much stronger
Do you dare take the chance and walk out into the call of the sea
Or maybe you should run back to the comfort you know so well
How can you know which way to go, if only to listen to the sound of your heart
With the waves getting stronger and your desire growing too
And the warmth of the breeze like his breath on the back of your neck
Suddenly you feel the rushing water pull you down and begin to move
Just as the waves come to the shore and back out to the sea again
The body gives in to the current and allows itself to be drawn out beyond
Once out from the feel of the ground under the feet allowing the motion to carry
This once frightened body into the wide open sea with all it's wonders
To a place I have never been before but dare to travel because it feels so right
The arms don't fight to get away, the feet don't move to run from this place
The heart and soul already know this is where this person belongs
And this body shall die drowning in this sea of love.

I think this deserves to be at the top again, so here it goes ! What an emotional depth I feel when I read this ! It's like I'm there - I've been there!!! You painted the picture so wonderfully!
