By the old red brick hands gripped into the face mortar crumbling in our hands as a future we felt so deeply nothing could seem to be wrong as we felt the vibration between ourselves lips enlashed hair entwined eyes enrapped as water swirled over the wall and we held

Like a japanese battle before the advance in torrential rain we held in respect for nothing should be squandered so easily in the heat of a moment seeking relase on a dark thunderous night of challenge in the rough waters on the quay

Maybe there would be a tomorrow, a beating for me, and I would fight as I could, maybe I could say something but I dont have those words in me no matter how it goes

You are safe, wet but safe and in a land of fisherfolk we face the sea and I come from a fishing family and I will prove myself

Lets go to your home and some day

We will go to ours

Thanks Midnight.

It has been in my head for a long time.

A poem tonight kicked it into being.

I just need to find the rest and write some more when it comes out of my head, some time.

I especially liked the weave of the sea here...

The last two verses were sweeter, and gave much power to the entire write.

Would suggest punctuation when you finalize, at the points the reader should pause.  Hoping it helps you showcase this fine work.
