Could it be possible
Could love me because of all my good, and despite
All my bad?
Could someone be so willing
To endure my load
Of sadness, strangeness, and chaos
Because they think time spent with me
Is worth it?
Maybe you haven't swam deep enough
In the oceans of my thoughts to understand how dangerous I am
To be with
Despite the warnings on the shoreline
You're willing to dive in?
What if you find you don't like the water?
What if it's too dark to see?
What if it's not worth the effort?
What if you drown in the sea that is me?
Surely your diving equipment isn't suited for this trip
But still you push at the tangling sea weed of doubt,
Oh so willing to discover the real me.
Down deep you may not find pearls or buried treasure, on the contrary there are dark things
that lurk in the deep,
but all the same
You continue to swim,
I just hope that what you find
Is worth the journey
