I dived into his love
He swore it was deep enough
That it would swamp me
That I could drown in it

The first rush sent tingles through me
Left me gasping in delighted shock
It surrounded me
I could feel it on all sides

Deeper I went
More confident now
Sure, I thought,
That its bounds were beyond my limits

Then, suddenly, unexpectedly,
I hit the bottom
Sharp pain, battering, bruising
Bringing me up short

I surfaced, dazed, as he looked on,
Bewildered and upset.
It seems there was a difference
In our definition of deep.
