Floating upstream

Floating upstream

A Poem by Venus Herzog

Swim to me aquatic lover
Tell me what it's like deep down 
You're  eloquence unbeknownst to you 
I promise you will always be beautiful to me 

I'd like to make a bungalow in your head
Maybe just for a while
Pack your troubles along with me & take the burden off your dorsal
Keep you afloat 

Your scales are strong from floating upstream 
I can't pretend to understand your fight
But I promise to always swim close behind 

Whenever you feel like just a small fish in your vast blue perspective
Know that you have filled the space in between my lungs 
With an elixir all your own 
Your salt water will never fully evaporate from my soul  
Without you I will have to rely on air 
Experiencing you was the best kind of drowning
