 Cable Bay by Sam Burcher

 

The day we nearly drowned at Cable Bay,

our spirits stood above the waves

and something in your voice said stay.

 

It started out so innocently,

a skinny dip at sunset haze,

the day we nearly drowned at Cable Bay.

 

The waves were black, but they were calm

until the sea began to rage,

and something in your voice said stay.

 

Tumbling fast, my head skimmed rocks,

saltwater streamed from my face

the day we nearly drowned at Cable Bay.

 

I scrambled, cutting knees and shins,

you trod the swell with frightened grace,

and something in your voice said stay.

 

The wind dropped, you drifted safely in,

and say my bloody cuts will fade,

the day we nearly drowned at Cable Bay,

and something in your voice said stay.
