black water

down under i see your face
take me by the hand
come dance with with your daddy
till death do us part
if i ever lose my faith in you
gas food lodging next right
i almost didnt come home again
slipped on little debbie's steps
invited to swim from their dock
of the lake, cousins swimming
on the other side, or sitting
in the gazebo, my kids on the boat
only my cousin peggy saw me
id gone off by myself to talk to d
on the phone, thought, its hot,
wouldnt it be nice to stand in the
water, invisible moss on the concrete
steps, landed on my tailbone
are you alright? she yelled from
the end, i turned around, got on
my knees, im fine, i yelled back
then blacked out, she said i fell
backwards in slow motion, splash
it was a beautiful, long dock
she had to run the maze to get to me
i was under about 30 seconds
she enlisted help along the way
they pulled me out of the water
and down from the clouds
i'll never forget the sound of my name
dreamweaver, no stopping, standing or
parking, make life a three-legged race

when it's you're time to go you will go
David was a man that was to young to go
tame the sea tame the sun tame the moon
because up until your time is up
you gots ta kick ass!!!

HFS! That's SCARY!

Welcome back to the ranks of the breathing. Take care of you, girl! Don't know what I'd do without my periodic poetic brain-teaser fix.

Hugs, and deep inhales.

don't drown in the fountain of sorrow
even those of us who think we know you
think you're wonderful
