Swimmers Solitude

Alone in company
Passing in paths
Never crossing
Caught in parallel universes
Some going up
While I go down
I go down
Into her depths
Concrete womb
Ritualised immersion
Her waters part
To receive me
Re-birthed along
The narrow lane
Tensions slick
My daily bread
Of neurosis
Floats away
She greets me
As a lover
Caresses me
Intimately touches me
She knows my body
It’s contours and its curves
Alone yet never lonely
Stillness in momentum
I listen to her silence
Beneath her watery kisses
And rest

In her floating embrace
