Sunday Scribble.



So deep underwater
heart weighted to keep me
lost in you
I hear your muffled sounds, feel
your call from far away
your shape, a trick of light
and I can only hope you see
my siren bubbles
hear their song breaking
your surface, a reminder
that I am here beneath you

Nice. The title and the last line especially.

I like the power of your poem and the different ways it can be interpreted. Thank you for sharing.

Marti said...

I like it. I haven't been read any Magpies for a while, and this is a good "welcome back." Well done. :)

Nice poem. Nice 'depth' to it indeed!

Sue said...

This one definitely tells a story.

'heart weighted to keep me lost in you' ... reminded me of a past love - or two!
