To You: An Open Letter

By Salty Ships

It is 
in 
my being
and bones
what I harbor for you. 

It is
like
the home of lights
and the wine of wind
what I harbor for you. 

It is
the
calm 
and rage of the storms
what I harbor for you.

It 
is
just
you.

    I like how the cadence changes in the fourth stanza by splitting "It is" into two lines. To me it gives it a very clipped rhythm...almost as if the speaker is resigned.
