drown again

remind me again


of that look in your eye

that panic from asphyxiation

then the joy

of inhaling epiphany instead,


show me how

your hands outstretch, and

how you gesture at the sky

for clarity


let me watch you struggle

and when you bob back up

don’t hide the gasp in your eye,

the greed for more


drown again

let it happen


but this time pull me under too

grab my hand,

steal my air

and I’ll search with you


for the only thing that

trumps these uncertain depths,

is being      without you

at the surface
