You said you lived your life underwater.

Here I stand at the shoreline as the water meets my feet.

And you’re somewhere out there, but so far out of reach.

I’ll let the waters stand between us as a testament to the vast emptiness that exists there now.

I will scream across the tides, don’t fight the waves.

The water will always win and I was never much of a swimmer.

I can’t keep saving you.

I am still bleeding over an unreachable coastline,

but I will always remind you that letting go isn’t the same as giving up.

I hope that one day you learn to swallow that water instead of drowning.

Until that day I hope the water washes away your sins and blessed be.
