Venus & Mars
My relationship was a diving board
Me: standing on the edge of bliss and borderline
The board: flexible, sturdy and not going anywhere
Was I pushed or did I dive?
I thought it was shallow but my god it’s the deep-end
Must’ve hit it because I can’t quite seem to remember anymore.
Am I moving at the speed of light or
not at all?
And in which direction do I appear to be moving?
How does one observe oneself when all one ever sees is just another reflection?
Look for me and never stop.
I am in the depths now
Born to float in the shadows of the under sea
Existing for the moment that my face breaks the surface
And the supple shine from the solar god
Reaches in to make glitter of the waters on my skin
It’s the only thing I came with, and the only thing I’ll take.
