Wholeheartedly

by mandaceehb

Dive in, plunge in so deeply that you hit rock bottom before you

remember what darkness feels like

The pressure will be so destructive that the stitches binding the skins of your shadows

will burst apart, releasing your soul to

dance freely in open waters

Crystalline bubbles of breath trace 

your salt-choked lips and you finally remember what

oxygen tastes like

 

In the moonlight the ocean moulds itself around our bodies

A cloak of life that rests upon your shoulders, and mine

Promise me you’ll wear it wholeheartedly

if not always

Fall into these abysmal depths with me, at least

once in your life
