night swimming


there is something

so revealing about the dark.


the water twists around my ankles,

your name twists around my heart.


there is something

so freeing about a sleeping sun.


I shiver on these awake summer nights,

dripping and frozen and I would still do it again.


there is something

so dangerous about the letters night pulls from my lips.



I don’t know if I would say this tomorrow.
