Impasse

Are you drowning beneath my waves?

Toss you around like it’s okay

entrapped in my salty being,

you can’t escape.

Beneath the surface lies a dark abyss

it drew you in with our first kiss,

now you gasp as I fill your lungs

don’t dare tell me you’re done.

Above, the sky tried to send a warning

wouldn’t hear the dark parts of me

you jumped feet first into my frigid depths

didn’t know how fast I’d steal your breath.

you swam out too far to turn back

reach up above waves that thrash

back and forth we constantly crash

here we are, at an impasse.

Will I let you survive?
