And so we went under
and learned how to swim
(better and better)
I learned how to hold
my breath longer
and make more space
inside me (with you)
I learned how
to hold everything
I needed
to survive
in me
so that as the water
began to rise
I could still breathe
and remember
the good

And yes
(for sure)
we hurled caution
to the wind
and sometimes we got tangled
(seemingly inevitably)
And sometimes we flew
higher than I knew was possible
higher than I knew one could fly
as if we were above the sky
carried by what I couldn’t see
but felt in every part of me

And I remember
him saying
Love is like the wind
you cannot see it
but you can feel
without a doubt
it is there
(It is here)

And I fell
I fell head over heels
completely untethered
like a kite with broken strings
The wind took me
in and out and up and down
till all twisted and turned
(nearly inside out)
I admit
all I knew
(for certain)
was that
I was
(most definitely)
in love
with you
