Another Morning

I have a heart
submerged so long
after the ties have loosed
their hold, we still cling
to the surface of that family tale
like children learning to swim
clutch the rough pool edge
trusting it will save them
from drowning

A week into two November daily writing challenges, it took three prompts to get even this much: “submerged” from the PAD Chapbook Challenge and “Where is your heart” and “Their hold on me had long since loosened” from Yeah Write.
