i know you feared the depth
i know you cast your line
and feared its measurement
avoiding anchor
as if never
to see the shore
or hope
for safety
i know you did
i know you
scoured the water
for an answer
that would not change
or disappear
their liquid center
caught in the mystery of your
self shifting and momentum
gathering, rising tidal
fury as terrifying
as its calm
i know you
hide when the sky becomes dark
teaching you all too well
the exterior hardens, the eyes
close, the ship turns
from itself
leaving becomes
the only palpable recourse
i know
no matter how many times you crash
and fail
i will still be here.
