Stare-downs have cast me in a duel
They know not, but I’m fighting.
Their spoken thoughts in these tears,
They know not, but I’m drowning
Lost in the pool of words,
plunging me further.
And emotions steering me, wherever they please
I seek the surface, free from suppressed pleas.
Their spoken thoughts in this teary pool,
Have me overwhelmed
Each an anchor, weighing me down
Each a jab, leaving me queasy
Each a drop, in my gloomy wet world
Spoken thoughts, spoken thoughts
I’m drowning in tears
Fighting for freedom, but the surface is nowhere near.
You have me bound in a world of unease
Free me, Free me
Set my release.
