Acid on my Tongue

The blood pounds in my ears
As the silence closes in around
Quiet expectation emanates from the other
Face to face with the abyss, I dive in

The silence breaks with a stifled shout
The sweet sting of acid blesses my senses
The earth rolls beneath me
And the winds sing their song beautifully

Beneath the ocean's waves
I breathe in gratefully
Exhaling softly in the waters
The wind's song lifts me high above

With the earth quaking, the wind's song reaches its climax
A final jolt of sweet acid flows from the spring
With a deep breath, I pull away from the abyss
And smile at the grinning face of Aphrodite before me
