I lay things in the deep

I’ll lead you to the pool

 

Undress you for your somber dive

 

Bid you prayers and warnings

 

Love on my breath, our lips

 

And you dip beneath the stillness 

 

You’ll see me, I think

 

Parts I’ve never shown

 

Places in the deep

 

You’ll swim down and see them

 

Raise a light to the drowned ruins

 

Read the writing in dead tongues

 

And you’ll surface

 

Wipe the wet from your face

 

Tell me what you’ve seen I whisper

 

And you’ll smile at me

 

Beauty
