Breathe Underwater – Poem #17

06/08/2019 4 By GlennThomas

Flailing, water fills my lungs
Salt takes rest upon my tongue
Wander through memories made
As life in a shared light fades
 
Years spent swimming together
Wasted. A delicate endeavour   
Hold me under, prevent my escape
Leave me afloat amid heartbreak
 
Don’t walk and expect me to wake
Sail through pools of salted lakes
Drown me, in the hope you’ve slaughtered
Now let go, I can breathe underwater
