when I was 5 years old 

the ocean swallowed me 

and I swallowed her.

my uncle pulled my body

out of the ripping tides

and forced her out.

in the moments 

of my drowned recollection 

i only hoped that I was going 

where I was meant to be

and indeed fate intervened.

I hope this is the same.

I hope your leaving 

is just life 

being forced 

back into my lungs.
