Drown



In the decent to the bottom

of that which makes you

drown,

take my forgiveness

with you.


Take the knowledge

that I feel

bad

for you--

down.

In the decent

into never knowing yourself

again

in the way

you once did.


In the shadow

of night

with your

breath

in my

ear.

With your

arms

around

my waist.

Take with you

the knowledge

that

I would have

done better

by

you.

Much better

by far.

Take

it

down.

Drink

it

in.


Swallow

it

whole.


And know


the pain

that I have

known.

As you drown

in the will

of someone else.

The busted balloon.

The disintegrated dream.

Take this as my kiss to you--

A kiss

good-bye.

As

You

go

down

and

drown.
