I am a blind cavefish

Swimming back and forth

Between the years

And through the chambers of your heart

I want so badly; the lifeblood passed unto your breath

The Rio Grande flows

Its swiftness a mystery

I am so lost in it

Lackluster and sightless

My world full of enemies

The expanse lingers

Unaware of day or night

Or if I suffocate

The deception that freedom awaits me

As the current throws its weight against my skin

Surfacing my only hope
