No Way Is Up

I’m trapped beneath the surface, pulled under by violent waves of missing you.
My lungs ache for air (Would you share some of yours?), and the lights are slowly flickering upstairs.
I’m dizzy and hopeless, swimming like a cinder block, trying and failing to call out your name.
The darkness seeps in all around the edges.
My lungs slowly stop fighting back.
This is it. This is missing you.
This is collapsing in on myself and wondering if you’ll notice.
I’m lost at sea in a vast ocean of lonely nights, too far away now to see your lighthouse shine.
I let it take me over.
My last thought is a wish to someday wash up on your shore so you can fill my lungs with fight.
