Run with me like Water

salty tears have filled
this lake
I no longer sink
I float next to you

Underneath me
depths still gape open
shadows swim
below the surface
but I choose not
to follow them
anymore

and on the shores
I gather some drops
from your skin

They taste bittersweet
they taste like
waiting
taste like
“no more” and “forever”
all mixed into one.
