Drowning

There are times
When you’re holding me
Tightly to your chest
As you move inside me
When I wonder if this
Us together
Is like what drowning
Might feel like
Unable to take a breath
Teetering on the edge
Until we claw our way to the surface
Together gasping
Air rushing in
The feeling of having been
Knocking on Heaven’s door
Together
Alive together
Drowning in your eyes
Breathing you in
Knowing for certain
No doubt
That you are
The oxygen I breathe
And the only way
I ever want to die
Would be to drown
In our love
