submarine

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.
