He was on his knees

rowing around her,

tears pleading,

she floating,

her lips silently


composing her symphony and compiling literary

moments he was desperate to understand

the ache to the point of unbearing

but she knew he just needed help hearing/hearting/breathing…

she ever so gently

throws the life ring
