*truth

today you led me
into the inner ocean
the whipping waves
of my doubtful heart
and said, talk
tell me what’s wrong..
which woke the monster
in the depths
pulling me downward
a freezing undertow
i didn’t want to say
i didn’t want to drown
in the truth
of my own helplessness
i kicked furiously
clamped my jaws shut
covered my eyes
for reality hurts
but you held me
as i was going under
breathed nurturing
into my gasping mouth
and caught every word
