There’s this pounding in my chest As I try to catch my breath, Hoping for a moment of rest.
How do I escape this noise? Tired of looking for life’s joys, Empty words in these envois.
I wonder of what could be, Dream of possibilities, Blinded to reality.
Lost in your emerald eyes, Floating in these murky isles, I think I’ll stay for a while.
Wish I could escape the pain, But the memories remain. As the night begins to wane,
I let drowning take over, Swallow and drag me under. Numb, so I don’t remember.
I'll move on and let you go, Away from the undertow, But that will be for tomorrow.
