Water

You are here
And I am there

As I sink
You rise
Descending
Downwards
Towards
Light
Within the
Night

So I pull
And you push
Heavy
Ascending
I bend to kiss
And you shush

And I collapse
So you expand
Halos
Form
Around necks
Ribs
Hands

Hymns
Gyrate
Inside

Like tiny
Fireflies

So we go
Like two comets
Parting

Zinging
Across nothingness
And from the dark
I see you

Through the water

Further away
Farther than I
You splinter
Like flames

I bleed density
And sigh.
