Tread There Once More
by Norman Dean VanPelt

She dances with words,
so not to break the underpane of glass 
that is him.
It's like walking on ice 
across vastly deep oceans.
Afraid to fall into the depths 
and drown in it.
For she has fallen through before,
into the cold suffocation of despair.
The drowning experience 
that had scarred her life,
and made her afraid
to tread there once more.
She will eventually find her way 
back to the shore.
To begin again and start once more.

He had fallen through before, too.
Now he stands on the shore 
waving his arms frantically 
and shouting to his love.
So she might make it ashore to him 
and tread once more
with him, hand in hand.
For he knows if they fall in,
they could save each other.
Giving each other's breath,
so not to suffocate and drown again.
They could swim to the shore once more,
unscarred and loving each other all the more.
