Loving you is like a river,

Running wild as I try to hold on for dear life.

I can’t catch my breath.

Wait… no

It’s like the ocean,

And I am drowning tonight.

They say “learn to surf”

I never even bothered to learn to swim.

But as I stand here,

Even the sand is unsteady.

It’s hard to value solidarity,

You move so fast

And change with the moon.

I beg for calmness, but never find it.

Search for answers that I couldn’t bear to ask the question to.

Why is this so hard?

Boat tossed with the wind,

Sails fly then tear.

Ever sinking am I.

Ever sinking…

Don’t save me.


I will tame you.

One day…

I will learn to surf.
