Write you away (2.5 years old)

Write you away
Into the grains
Of this page

The ink of
All the rage

Write you away
Like it never

Wish you away
With that shooting
Star I lost

Off the edge

Jumped in deep toes far
From the sandy floor

With one big breath and leap
Swimming far from the shore

The Swell is coming
Dark shapes are near

My limbs are numbing
some kind of death I fear

Wave after wave
Lash my face

Hardship and saltwater
Are all I taste

Yet somehow...I'm swimming stronger now
Though a little tired, getting used to how

To survive tredding deep, so with a gulp of air,
I prepare again to leap, with one last prayer

Off the edge
