people tend to
enjoy the shallow water
they like to keep their heads up high

and I
tend to keep my hopes down
to find someone
so brave
yet maybe so damaged

someone who wants to
see it all
see all of the deeper parts
feel it all
feel the cold
seeping into fragile lungs
bones and ribcages
never experienced such
coldness
and devastation
and hurting
ever before

the deepest parts of an ocean
that everyone's so intrigued
fascinated
yet so terrified
to ever discover

and maybe
I am an ocean
and the thought of you
discovering
-everything
what is buried on the ground
and long forgotten
(I keep it shallow)-
devastates me

as I know that you will leave me

leave

leave

leave
like everyone else did.

as I know that
people tend to
stay in shallow water
they like to keep their heads up high

and I am not
a head up high
