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
