I cannot swim; the water tugs at me.
I cannot kick; my feet won’t hear my pleas.
And while you stood, I went glassy-eyed.
Began to sink, as you couldn’t find the signs
that were the death of me.
And rolling back, I began to breathe.
I began to breathe.
And it was silent, but it brought relief.
One fluid breath, I felt it leaving me.
Track Name: Feather Dealt
A gentle push was all it took;
to throw you from the greatest height
A weighty word, so feather dealt.
Lifts, picks you up, it’s heavenly.
A warm caress, it’s comforting.
Tell a lie, it only plays with you
and you’re terrified, paralysed.
Evidently, this was too much for you;
the thought that she would ever leave.
Thought it a state of permanency.
