nightswimming.

let’s talk about this betrayal
it was meant to be you and me here
night framed by streetlights
these empty lanes
the lure of surrender
this dark glass intimacy
you promised it could all go away
by silent exile
or anonymous violence
either would suffice
an escape from feeling and the things
that burn too bright by day
this was your vow
now the haven’s broken
exposed to the world
and life floods too quickly
life floods too deep

I lose my footing in this swell
my anxiety grasps at silt

and this drowning is indelicate
this drowning will never end

..

nightswimming.
