Common Ground

In the dark depth of the sea 
when friendship ends
before you know it;
at the bottom of heartbreak 
we both take 
a lunge into elsewhere;
at the center of loneliness 
we splash into a pond
of tears
and squirm around
fearing of what might happen next
we both search 
for a life preserver 
something to keep us afloat
something firm
something new
Thats when it appears 
a buoy called happiness
bobbing in the center of us 
and we reach out to it 
for all we are worth 
and we stay there
in the place we were meant to  be
