Crawl up, As you were Submerged Deep in the ocean's bowels, Driving the world into a flood Of rapidity, Among overlapping emotions. You'll seek to gain What the world has long lacked Upon its very back. Setting sail to the distant sunrise Where moonlight comes crashing down For our voiceless prayers. Crawl up For breath, Because love has some new air for you to breathe, After all you thought it to be Was the water to drink, Though it had stung your closed eyes. Here all the fates come colliding, Entering remembrances, Eating our teardrops, Belittling our mouths Open for the rain, Letting loose the pain In tragic screams. I have long wanted Your hair to flow with the settling snow, Not for your smile to see the whole uncertainty Of something deeper than you've ever dived.
