S E A S O N S

S U M M E R

I’m drowning and she’s suffocating

She comes up for air, gasping

I stay under, I’m not afraid to die

She calls my name, my favorite sound

Here we go, the island Paradise

Is just over the horizon

Just keep swimming, I think

Even if I drown, she’ll be happy

She won’t let me go alone

Suffocating and drowning

We keep swimming

The shore gets closer

Waves crash against the sand

Sun kissing our skin

Then we come

To Paradise

A U T U M N

The wind rips my face as I descend

A light brown landing pad waits at the bottom

I took the leap without a care or thought

Now, here I am barreling towards the earth

The dangers of failure don’t cross my mind

Neither does falling alone without a parachute

To slow me down

W I N T E R

I crack as you step on me

However light you think you are

Every gurgle underneath is a warning

A telltale sign that enough is enough

You don’t listen, but this isn’t anything new

Because when have you ever

They told you that I was fragile

You even saw others sink below before

You thought that you were different

That you could walk out here

And be cool as snow

Sleek like the bottom of your boots as you slide

I split apart as you land flat on your face

The cold waters beneath me take you

Being cold never made me hard as you assumed

Just easier to break.

S P R I N G

It is the beginning of a season of new life

Love, resurgent.

I stare out at the budding flower, the bees busy

Pollinating petunias and moving amongst magnolias

I feel the Sun burning against my skin

Creating a glow that hides the dark void

Where your love once was

Where laughter was sonar

Where my cries are now silent

In this season

I miss you.
