Rachel Nicole Wagner
“Deep

You, you’re deep water
And I’m scared because I can’t defaulter
I don’t know how to swim,
So, if I jump in,

I’ll be consumed by your waves.
I’ll try to keep my head above the rage.
But you’ll just swallow up my whole.
My entire being will be controlled.

If I were to dive,
I could no longer thrive.
You would consume my being;
Leaving me breathless, not breathing.

Is there a medium I can prescribe?
That would allow me to disguise
The fear I gather in my bones.
I just can’t swim in the water of morone.

Do you possess a life support
To hold me up? My last resort.
If I jump in, I’ll drown in bends.
Your love is suffocating, nothing can amend.
