across the waters

was going to put it in the mail and send
but changed my mind fearing the end
words sailing in a little boat
crossing the ocean and the moat
landing on shore as waves guide
let me come out - i don’t want to hide
the words so delicately scream
the bottle in the sun, letting off steam
popping the cork and unrolling the scroll
reading the notes, wondering what will be the toll
up the castle steps while taking in the letter
a leap of faith, can leave you feeling better
