I loved you so deeply I began to drown.

My love for you is an ocean—endless

and overflowing, yet I am the only one

drowning.

 

The moment you first touched me,

I knew I had found myself deep

in a love from which I would never

recover.

 

The current draws me farther and farther.

Seaweed the color of your eyes wraps

around my limbs intertwining as our

bodies did.

 

The ocean as dark and blue as your

bedspread pulls me under, sealing my

fate. My lungs deflate, my body grows

numb, yet I wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

Permanently, unchangeable, irrevocably yours.
