Submerged by Light

I am submerged by light,
lips moving
to speak like the sea.

There is a real boat
but no one is in it.
Imploring hands
disappear unseen.
This is the way
water drowns.

There are a few words left
swimming like rats
in a circle.
The Goddess
does not rescue them.
Her love is greater
than any speaking circle.
