Are we drowning or just taking our time
Am I dragging you deeper or are you pulling me down
Is it your past that’s latching on and causing you to sink,
or the fear of my future that’s causing you to tremble and slur
your movement towards the surface.
I wish I was strong enough to carry this burden you hold on yourself,
just so you can get a quick breath of air,
so we could attempt to swim to the shore together rather than alone
