Four laps out, up and over,
Roll your arms like a roller coaster.
Your hair hangs by your sides like seaweed,
Sticking to your alabaster skin like a stain.
Isn't it beautiful how something so lifeless
Becomes a hurricane when the danger rises?
Flowing next to you, I feel you in waves.
Crashing, rocks against the shore. My heart
Throws us into the stones and we crash,
Together we crash, arms interlocked
And we fall back,
Sinking, like that fridge you threw
Off the third floor when I told you.
When I told you,
And the thunder rippled in your arms
As your hand went through the wall.
And your back is such a weight.
Watching it, they call me Atlas,
But I don't go to the gym
So I hope my twig legs don't snap
Letting go in the blackness,
Lit only by the fire in our lungs,
You let go.
"Let me sink."
But he forgot his heart was a safe,
And he reached out into the dark,
But our arms weren't interlocked this time.
When your arms rolled,
When the waves rolled,
