Paroxysmal Delight

by Cadence Beret


There are no words to describe
The absolute bliss
The sense of completeness
When every particle within
In and all around me
Irrepressibly
Intensify
And then subside

   exhilarated excitement
   uncontrolled release
   ebullient delight
   white noise silence

I am water reaching shore
I surge and crest and crash and roar
Every particle within
Bursts and explodes
Fizzes and foams
Blended with the air
I am vaporized
With you by my side
