Poem 32

a poem about someone i love (W) ; written nine months ago; apparently still true


It’s quite a life I live
In this (w)hole
With you and my heart
On my sleeve
And the balloons you bring
To help me breathe

I was a fish once;
Twice… For I while if
I remember correctly
Until the water dried away
and you found me here 
Where you filled me with air

But this is quite a life
If I may say with my mute lips
Mouthing my gratitude 
One bubble at a time
Until the sea comes again
And you yank the hooks out
