Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 --I swim into the depths--
  You know I'm deep;
  You've felt my soul.

      I know;
  You know I'm deep.

      How deep,
  You'll never know.

      You could,
  Drown in the depths.
  But I wouldn't dream;
  Of letting you drown.
    I couldn't dream;
 Of letting someone else in.

       It's my creek.
       It's my river.
       It's my ocean.
       It's my soul.
       I'll drown...
       I wont let you.

       It's my right,
      To pick through.
       It's my right,
         To choose.

       Their my thoughts.
      The ones that I keep.
    The ones that I keep close.
    Their mine and mind alone.

        So I'll swim out.
        Into the depths.
          If I want to,
       I'll even skinny dip.
          It's my soul.
     You let me pull you in.
      Come on in and swim.
         Only so far in.
     We stop when I say when.

        If we go to far.
        There are things;
      That just aren't nice.
      They bite like snakes.
      They scratch like mice.

          If we go to far.
        We may not come back.
        So we stop when I when.
        When...I say when.
        Then you'll go back.
          I'll move on.
       I'll drown alone.
        I wont let you.

        These places are,
       mine and mind alone.
      They are dark and deep.
       There secrets that;
          I alone keep.

      So I move in on my own.
        In these deep,dark;
        Black waters alone.
      These waters of my soul.

           If I come back;
           You know I will.
          Will you be there;
         Waiting for me still.
              Will I be;
              All alone.
              On my own.
