Sink or swim


Laura Spierings

There's a storm brewing under her skin
and the water is dragging me in

I can't seem to sink or swim

Drawing me further into her shell
from the surface I could never tell

That there's a riptide under her skin

I just hold my breath
and let it in

Laura Spierings is a Dutch poet with an MA in English Literature from Durham University (UK). She has been writing most her life and often finds solace near any body of water.
