This poem sounds suspiciously like a love poem. But I swear up and down that it's not :/ But I'll put it under the love/romance category anyway D:

I see you crying

I extend my hand to you

But you reach for it not

How can you not accept my help?

But perhaps I do not understand

The depths of your tears.

So I do more than reach

I swim to save you

Perhaps you are surprised

I am certain you are panicked

You fight an exhausting, losing battle

With all of your being

You are struggling against the tide

You are fighting against me

But I am fighting with you

And despite, or perhaps because

Of your best efforts

I carry you to shore

With me

You still in my arms

And there, you will always be.

The End
