safe

by eloisehendy

all night my hand you held
pulled into the depths and
pulled under and
oh baby
i’m going down
anchored way out
past blue
horizon line
i find i can breathe
underwater and
just in time
with you
i find myself
further out than i thought
safe

all night my hand you held
all night
i did not sink

did you know
even then
you were saving me
from storms

did I know
even then
oh baby
down was the way
home
