a mother’s suicide

slip into the water, it's cool.
help me understand why i never could.

i made you, out of heartbreak and ecstasy,
intertwined in temporal bliss

there is one time i thought of taking my own life
but found your eyes gazing at me intently

what really makes you understand, why I'm sad
i told you, dive in the water

the water is cool, it extends to the horizon
that is rising to my forehead very fast

if the sun sets, i will be there for you
even if i am gone

never forget the way i held you
when you sleeping with wet eyes

your cheek against mine
death so temptingly close

i find peace
i will always be there
even when my horizon
flattens me

the sun will always dry your tears.
