Underwater

How long can I stay down this time?

I’m still too close to the surface.

If I can sink further down, I can get far enough away to make it impossible to go back.

Just lie back and sink.
Be still.
Let my weight take me down.
Any breath that would drag me back up,
let it go.
Let it go.
Let it go.

There is no floor beneath me.
I can float down.
Down into the dark.
Down into the dense.
Down into the deep.

How long will I stay down?
Let us forget.
This time it will not end.
I won’t be back.

I knew I would find you here.

Down where there are no more edges.
Down where the voices go silent.
Down where my love
waits to see me home.
