Tides

Memories never drown
They’ll help you float
Or take you down
No matter how shallow

The water

Keeps you warm in
Pushes you out of
The womb

Giving you life
Calling on you to swim

Sirens tell you they’re your friends
Mermaids too

They draw you to the waves

Wrap themselves around you
Promising the comforts of home

Then they vanish
Leaving you to find your way to shore
Alone
