I lay things in the deep

Mon, 12/13/2021 - 18:54 -- tokii

I’ll lead you to the pool


Undress you for your somber dive


Bid you prayers and warnings


Love on my breath, our lips


And you dip beneath the stillness 


You’ll see me, I think


Parts I’ve never shown


Places in the deep


You’ll swim down and see them


Raise a light to the drowned ruins


Read the writing in dead tongues


And you’ll surface


Wipe the wet from your face


Tell me what you’ve seen I whisper


And you’ll smile at me
