I’ll go deep for you


It doesn’t make any sense
The depths I go chasing your pearls
Imagining they were yours not mine
Wishing I was beached overnight
My fears cloud visions of you so deep
Even if I could breathe cleaner air
I’d chase your wishes down to midnight
Just enough air back to see you laugh
Some pearls were too far to reach
Casts doubt about extensions
I landed in hospital beds sometimes
Awoke less like a man each time
Wilder in an aged humble hide
Clawing back…
