In his nightmares

The woman I was...
disappeared before I was born
died in the delivery room
giving birth to your love
drowning in its waves...
washed up on the beach
choking on sand...
her eyelids formed of seaweed
asleep in the very deep
Her lover left her there
sometime ago...
breathing deeply in gratitude
I came to him in his nightmares
to tell him she's gone...
