Submerged in the lake and I can't break the surface.
I know you're there, but you're out of reach.
I want to find you and feel your embrace.
Up there on the surface.
I know what awaits.
The copious air, the warmth of daylight.
The bliss of your presence, the love in your touch.
A hopeless mirage as I sink deeper.
All but a memory in this murky abyss.
