you’re there at the bottom
of the challenger deep.
all my noise you can’t hear.
all my tragedies you can’t see.
and all my feelings you don’t notice.
why don’t i understand?
why do i have to understand?
your disappearance breaks my heart.
you left without saying goodbye.
and i’m drawn to my own sadness.
without a warning,
as the water and sand tickle my feet,
there you stand out of nowhere,
joining me at the shallow part of the sea.
and my world has lost its darkness.
now i understand.
now i must understand.
you’re back to stay forever.
we’re reaffirming our love together.
and this is our own story.
