Diving after her I reach down to grasp her rapidly sinking hair
the swirling blackness surrounds us in a suffocating silence.
Yet still I can hear her scream ringing in my ears
and feel her anxious tears still wet on my shirt.
I push harder trying to catch her quickly,
calling for her to open her eyes, to see reality, to see me.
To acknowledge my amazing love, to feel the warmth
I still have in this beating heart, to know that I will never leave.
Begging her to believe her friend cares not though pity
I see her hand lifted, I grab it with all my being.
Rising up I feel the breath released, tension melting,
cheeks almost dry, I smile knowing she heard
And stay looking in the mirror till she smiles and walks away.
