Out To Sea

Move me                
 if you can
              Do what                               
        you will            
               Push me                                
                out to sea                
and I'll float           
  Just watch
me go                     
     and I'll grow
with you                
 or against
the currents         
           that try to bind
  this soul                 
 You can  
  follow me               
           while I dance 
along the waves   
    and lick  
   the moon dry           
           beneath this
starry sky
