This one is for my fiancé, who, on a daily basis, saves me from myself and my worst hidden fears.
This room has seen it all,
And yet its still standing, stark still.
Your mind wrapped up in a rectangle
Until my sigh blows with a telling chill.
Per usual, you see through my facade,
And when I tell you, “I am fine,”
My face caked with it’s lies,
You inch a little closer,
And peer into my eyes.
Inside you see the clear blue,
Pooling water, like the ocean
Just as the sun sets and the high tide rolls in,
Pulling me under,
Waves thrashing at my body,
Like knives thrown asunder.
It was just a question,
But now I am drowning
In all of my hidden sorrows,
And somehow you have an answer
For each ridiculous notion.
Somehow you throw me a lifeboat,
In my endless chaotic ocean.
