I don't beg you to stay when you choose to go
But you should remember
who fought the waves that tried
to wash away your colours back then
It wasn't those perfect shiny girls
you hang out with now
It wasn't him
you spend the nights texting with now
It was me, and I almost drowned myself keeping you above water
And now you learned how to swim,
and you don't need me anymore
I'm just a part of the past you want to forget
So go ahead, I'll be okay,
Done with hiding
under this sparkling blue surface
Done with holding my breath
You got to make it through the next storm on your own
Because I won't spend my life in freezing water waiting for you to need me.
