stay a float 

my mind is at a constant struggle,

to stay a float. 

please don’t allow it,

to get caught in the tide. 

i almost drowned once. 

a hand reached down, 

pulling me out, 

breathing again. 

my mind sinks too often. 

waves come over me. 

pushing us farther apart. 

my arm isn’t long enough. 

stretching fingertips, 

barely a touch. 

i can sit back and watch. 

i’m too scared to ask..

but a hand reaches over me-
