Dive, or: Drown

Poetry Partners #30

‘Dive’, a poem by Martha Anewa of ‘a young writer’s mind’

Time to dive into the words you spoke to me,
The day you told me you loved me and I thought it was a lie,
How little of love I knew back then,
Now I'm drowning in the fountain of love.

A shadorma by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

can't swim? good.
foolish immortal ~
you -can't- drown!
come now... stop
thrashing about already!
... you don't need to breathe.



Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

    Be bouyant, float, you will get their too.
