Gallimaufry

touch my skin and let me breathe again.

I was drowning before I met you.
Submerging into the depths of my despair.
And despite your love, I stayed there.

Counting the seconds until I could no longer hold my breath
And you tell me to breathe
But it’s harder than it seems.
I take one look into the mirror
And let my wild thoughts run free

Let my thoughts be the anchor that is tied to my feet
Sink into the deep
But I am not a submarine

I will never make it.

But one kiss and you give me a taste of what the surface looks like.

And so I think to myself,
Maybe I won’t drown
after all.
