For a moment back there
I was a mermaid, swimming
freely, free of gravity,
the deep pull of the earth,
the dark hold of matter.

My skin whispered your name
and I drifted, like kelp,
danced by the ocean current –

but air called me, pulled me up,
out of the drowning noise,
the music that filled my lungs.
Air beckoned, and I rose,

leaving you behind,
with your empty words,
hands, eyes, your
ultimately empty heart.
