Asteroid before the impact in water

I would make
this Icarian plummet
from the Sun
falling through the clear crisp sky
for the joy
of feeling the impact
with the surface of the ocean
in her eyes
in rapturous pain
to feel the warm
waters close over my head
and sink into my dreams of her
and if it would mean
that by making this fall
I would one day
hear her sweet voice
and no longer count her kiss
in memories made
from wishes
summoned between twilight and morning
even though
those lips I had kissed
in my mind
a thousand times
stood as still as the gates
to Hades
I understand
the fury of
Cerberus sleeps
within her eyes
and never will there be
a soul
more lost to the Styx
than mine
