Submission Submersion

breathe it.
not like air.
like water.
lower yourself
as into some hypnotic
cleanse yourself of
pretensions at autonomy.

lower yourself.
abase yourself.
sink to the bottom.
feel the chains of
green seaweed
seek your ankles and
drag you down.
give yourself to it.

lower yourself.
open yourself.
fill your lungs.
sink to the bottom
as you float away.
drown in it.
embrace it.
welcome it.

embrace it.
now you are nothing.
now you are everything.
now you're a captive.
now you are his.

now you know.

Beautiful. *smiles* I've missed reading here lately. Been cocooning and sick and quite frankly isolating. I Hope you are well. ((big hugs))!!
