I won't let you drown, but in case you do,

I don't know why I'm here,
As I see your mind fly,
my dear.

Dignified I ran away,
though I know,
you need me whole.

I'm just not here for them, 
I said,
staring at the demons in your head.

Sometimes when they have nothing to show,
I know nobody else but you,
you should know by now. 
you just should.
Wasting energy, 
I pretend not know that everything, 
will come back to me.

Don't you know?
you'll ask,
letting your fingertips follow my scars.
I'm here not to let you think about you,
just to take your heart ache away.
ignore the shades and focus on that in there, 
that shines,
you'll say.
I just don't want to see you fade out,
under those sleeves.
Let your self out!
Breath the ocean!
Taste the salt!
Feel alive!
and if you feel you'll drown,
I'll let you sleep, 
so a new day drops down.
Don't pretend you've had enough,
cause you cant have enough of our love.
Don't say you have your reasons,
when you've confessed to me in your sleep,
that, well, you really don't.
They are all broken, these charms.
come clean, I won't judge.
Explain the scars on your arms.
You can learn to love me back,
you say.
I'll take your troubles, 
they are not here to stay.

Remember when this was such an easy game to play?

If you ask me now, of course I'm fine.
Don't worry about me, love.
Remember I'm not broken,
just cracked,
some pieces are missing,
but I'll found them in the ones that don't fit back in your heart.

I tell my self you're right for me, 
and you are,
as far as I see.
remember what I told you?
there's no end to this.

Don't act like it never happened,
'cause we both know it did.

Come back to me tonight,
Shut your mouth while we kiss,
it's your right.

Don't let go,
'cause I might.

Dip your fingers in the sea,
now taste the salt,
I won't let you drown.
but in case you do, 
don't come and woo.

    Some VERY fierce lines! You'll open your arms, but you won't help them walk..or swim. It's up to them if they want to ride on that boat with you. Strong stuff! Love it!
