swim in an ocean of blankets,
afraid to touch the bottom, yet
unwilling to rise for air.

h o l d     m e ?

tightly in your embrace, we'll
float together. still don't need
air. we'll drown together.

i     w i l l     b r e a t h e     y o u     i n

coral bedsheets and sandless pillows,
a little red fish darting from your m
outh to mine.

i     w o u l d     n e v e r     l i e     t o     y o u

i could never do wrong to you.
you're my starfish.
