Fear Of Drowning - Poem by Annabel Cruz

I would like to enter you through your eyes;
To enter the coolness
Of their blue,
To swim in you
As the vast dark waves of memory
Float over my head, and drown me
With a passion.
The passion of a blue-grey past,
Unknown.

I would like to lose my fear
Of that mysterious bottom
Where raging currents
Pull me deeper, and
Deeper still
To that place where I will be lost
In sublime suffocation.

I would like to be amphibious;
To fill my lungs
With the knowledge of you,
To breathe your watery soul
As soft as air,
To breathe your liquid heart,
Smooth and gentle, like a baby’s sigh,
To breathe you in,
And out,
without fear of breathing
Without you.
