i choose life

i am swimming in your memories,
my love.

the water seeps deep
into my skin

it feels beautiful,
and I want to stay forever.

i dive
beneath the surface,
and float
in your luxurious blue.

it is beautiful,
and i wish to stay forever.

But the sea was not made
For human life

it was my heart that brought me under, 
and now it is my heart again
that urges me to rise,

For I am drowning,
in our memories. 

the earth's light
reaches for me

and my arms reach back,
grabbing at the blinding beams, 
until i break
through the surface, 
and swallow the air-

i have never tasted anything
more magnificent

i fought our depths, 
and i chose life

always, always, always-
i choose life.
