You told me to jump into the ocean of your heart
but I was afraid,
I reminded you that I never learned how to swim
so you promised that you would catch me
you reached up with your hands from the middle of your ocean
and softly whispered
Jump to me
so I did
I slowly undressed in order to be dressed by your waters
I removed my scarred skin
and stopped the pulse of my jaded heart
leaving myself bare to you.
I jumped into the void of your ocean afraid,
but certain that you would always be there to catch me,
and you did.
