I’m scared to fall in love again.
I’m terrified of free falling into the red abyss of vulnerability and acceptance.
The thought of allowing you in while I’m still trying to see through my cracked heart
maybe it will never hurt
but the phantom-like waves of drowning
wash over me
as my body starts free falling into the middle of the ocean.
Now in the middle
seconds from the end wondering if you were telling me lies or
If you were actually the truth
and were made to be my guard
but rather the guardian of my heart.
Will you swim out to the middle of our ocean and watch me as I take my final breath?
Will you swim out and grab my hand before I sink because you promised to never let go?
Please tell me which it is because the suspense will kill me.
The waters cold
don’t take too long
I never learned how to swim.
