Learning How to Breathe Under WaterTry to break me as I grasp my last breath of air.
Push my arms,
Wrap my legs,
Lock me in the waves.
I move to kick,
Move to fight,
Bodies swarm, blocking light.
My lungs fall, collapse,
I try to grab the edge.
Inside me thoughts lapse,
My lungs crush and scream,
My brain warns this isn't a dream,
I try to reach the slender ledge.
My thoughts end,
But I breathe again.
Why I do things I know I shouldn'tWith a face bare,
Seemingly concentrating, solid stone,
I use small clumsy fingers,
Hoping to find a smile I can call my own.
In my mind there are doubts,
One for each small finger, on a single hand,
One for the look of a down turned face,
One that says the result might hurt,
One that says the move is a disgrace,
One for the ways you profess,
One for my mind in its distress.
The other battles back with its ideals.
A face set alive even for a second with a simple smile,
Some movement I haven't seen in a while.
A voice that let's my mind whirl,
The laugh that causes my lips to curl,
And a hope that you don't mind.
Then a Heart that sways reason,
Saying that, even if it's only for a small time, isn't he mine?

My friends used to call William "Ironman" because the first time we kissed he got a nosebleed and the taste of his blood haunted me for a long time after it. We'd only been twelve years old and apparently the anxiety spiked his blood pressure to the point of combustion... I remember that when we were forced to take sex ed a few years later we were divided into separate classes for boys and girls, in case a diagram of an ovary was too risqué and we became animalistic and started clawing at each other in our seats, but nonetheless when our teacher Ms Jacobs had explained to us what an erection was in my mind all I could picture was the blood rushing to his nose and then the slash of cranberry across my blouse.
With the idea planted in his mind it didn't take long for William's hands to start wandering, but the image persisted. Every time I thought about just letting it happen I wondered what would happen if he got too excite
