I was on my knees
Yet, not low enough for you
You kicked me down
down, down, into the floor,
the mud, the dirt

Lower and lower
I must sink
You kept kicking until
I reached inferno; Earth’s inner core
Up on the surface, you stopped to listen

(To make sure I wasn’t breathing)

……..

I held my breath – to give you that second
A second of victory
Before I inhaled all the fire within Earth
And exhaled flames; all the way 
to the surface… A searing Sea to caress you…

…….

I stopped to listen

(To make sure you weren’t breathing)
