As far as I can see
This wet was meant to be
like the dew on flowers

like the ocean for fish
like river for crawfish
I feel so good and free

I get so wet, so wet
from head to toe I know
I tremble and quivver

I linger and linger
under the fountain stay
soaking up this freshness

feeling out of control
enjoying the cold heat
Every drop, every beat

My imagination 
of love spread out like sea
you and me together
this love was meant to be

    ‡ Wow, Such A Beautiful Image, Beautiful Treisha. Tis More Fragrant To One's Senses Than The Softness, Of A Beautiful Woman. Mesmerizing And Don't Forget To Dry Off, Haha, I Know I Won't. "Beautiful." Love, Rachel ‡

    Toaist stuff like wetness/cold/sea throughout the poem and bending the male characteristic of heat by coupling it as in cold heat. In the western tradition the tension between Apollo and Dionysian influences is heightened when you admit/celebrate to being out of control. Could a verse be worked in that would make that tension manifest. Also at the end you bring dualism male/female to a single point with "you and me together", but i assume much as you never name your object as male.
