My blood

It never fails, it’s as though I seek out
the strongest current and attempt an upward swim.
Battles waging war against this thirsty soul-
encapsulated by bones.

My feet flounder as I search for steady footing below
Pebbles providing push off
Sucked under, holding my breath-

You tossed me a life raft, her-
She holds my hand as we freely grace the harsh terrain below our callused soles

We’re saving each other-
My blood
Youth becoming women
