Shallow Waters


I get this feeling way too often

Flushed away and forgotten

Or never really thought of like 

The reason the sky is blue or 

The reason why you think it's okay to repeat the same actions over 

and over 

Or the reason why I do—

You stay on your mountain while I'm down here drowning

 In water that's not even deep but I just can't surface

The crazy thing is I always thought I was a good swimmer

From the lessons I had, 

Seeing others experiences I thought I would never drown
