Searching For Land

We’ve emerged from underwater

After the plummet

But we had almost drowned

The old us lie at the bottom of the ocean

We had to let them sink, they were weighing us down

Treading is tiring

Sometimes we float

Like driftwood on the waves

Energy has to be preserved

We’re not out yet

Just merely head above

The sharks still lurk beneath us

And I know we saw a light in the distance

Was someone sending help?

How did we get here?

Weren’t we merely going for a swim?

Before the home ship abandoned us in the middle of the sea?

And the thunder and lightning shook the waters

Did we just catch sight of shore?

Or was that merely a mirage?

The days have dissolved into one now

The bobbing to and fro would do that 

When will we return to the land of the living?

The old us are harder to remember now

With each ripple they seem less likely to have been real at all

We lie face up, our backs one with the current

Our skin burned from the sun

Our lips chapped from the salt

We hook index fingers

So not to drift apart during slumber

Our shapes make two starfish on the water

We hold on to see another day.
