Same Sea


I never paid much attention

to your name,

a silhouette in the background,

until suddenly we're in the same sea

Tides bring us in,

pull us down,

spill us among sins and sorrow

Crashing waves swirl us up,

knot us together,

push us out again

on elation before dawn

In a second

you're a headache

and a steady beating drum,

the wings holding me up

and the roots grounding me

And I can't believe

I ever braved this water alone
