if these things always come in waves then I'm
if you say it’ll get better some day then i'll
i’ll learn to swim.
if you see me struggling
would leap in to help me?
the moon looks better over the lake.
i think i might stay,
but if i wash up on the beach
would you even stop to see
the sand and algae hanging from me?
would you try to help me breathe?
would you please tell me my last ‘goodnights”?
would you sing me my final lullabies?
or would you leave me asleep by the sea?
