The Excess of Me

Watching as my imperfections floated to the bottom of the sea.
Swirling about like a tumbleweed.

My misgivings,
that I wanted no one to see,
now transparently free.
Shame floating beneath me,
Submerged and hidden,
beautiful and worn,
the excess of me.

The light filters up and it releases me.
Parting ways and now I can breathe.
I’ll float away, as you drown me.
