I can’t keep up. I’ve treaded too long
in the depths. Grip of the tide swells
around me until breath is frantic.
Out of air as old waves ebb out to sea.
You didn’t wait for me. I can’t
expect you to come back for me.
I don’t want you to save me
anymore than you want to be the one,
but you swam me out here. I wait
for arms like yours to pull me out.
I love no one but you, I have discovered, but you are far away and I am here alone. Then this is my life and maybe, however unlikely, I’ll find my way back there. Or maybe, one day, I’ll settle for second best. And on that same day, hell will freeze over, the sun will burn out and the stars will fall from the sky.
