I have came to terms with

the heavy waters that suffocate me,

the expectations that drown me,

press down on me;

a pressure I cannot lift.

But the irony is

it is there I found it,

the joy in your laughter.

And unknowingly

I feel myself beginning

to mimic the hunch of your shoulders,

double over in laughter

smile as wide as 

a thousand more seas.

But this time, 

it is your arms that keep me afloat.

You are the breath I beg for

under the current,

the relief to the pressure 

that paralyzes me,

my very own personal

life saver.
