there is fear in our faces, our silence

we spend the days like friends

the nights like strangers

our limbs barely brushing

as we sleep side by side

I think we needed a life vest

(I know I needed the life vest)

but now I can swim.

floating in the salt water,

there are several islands in sight

but I can’t move a muscle

until I let go
