Conversations Under Water

Do you remember when we were young
and we would spend entire days at the pool?

You and I would go under water,
stare at each other and scream words back and forth.
When we came up for air
we would translate or guess what the other had said.

Now, we are older and it always feels like
we are having conversations under water.  
When I come up for air,
you’re still beneath the surface  
and all I see are bubbles.
