somewhere this universe lacks a
mind whose thoughts i cannot drown,
a pool like the ocean where, reluctantly,
i jump into and swim towards you, without
thought of breath or place; so simply i
must feel and rush towards you, seal my
lungs with memories of kisses to survive
the water pushing me away, forcing me to
give into the air above… i must persist
even without sleep inside this dream
because I see no reason to wake without
retrieving you from inside the deep
