I Wade out into Other Forms

It used to come and go as it wanted, it seemed, love. It left me feeling helpless.
 
I wondered if there might be some kind of leash I could slip around its neck to remedy that situation, cherishing certain emotions as I did. Not wanting them to wander off.
 
An idea occurred to me: to hold God accountable when He said, In my image I have made you.
 
I demanded to see that, I started to picket His house, to see more of myself.
 
Waves of Him now greet my shore. I wade out into other forms of myself. And I swim in what I never thought I could.
 
Inseparate is any creature or object from Light, from the Ocean, became my discovery.
