Remember me, floating

I want the beauty of floating in water-
dress and hair swirling around me
with an elegance I can never achieve
on dry ground.

I will be your Ophelia
moments before she drowns.
I will draw you toward me
like the last breath
before sinking.

Look at me floating
and falling
and hold every part of me in your eyes
and know that this was once yours.

Remember me, floating.

Only then may we both find
the peace of the silence
of water.
