i saw in him

what i see in me.

happiness a question

with no answer.


i won’t drown with you on your sinking boat

some people go low,

but i don’t need to go lower.

committed to a fault,

accepting my faults.

thinking i needed to stay loyal when i needed to stay healthy.

seeing the best in you.

my strength also my weakness.

a few lessons learned,

many more to go

as your truth comes out.

remaining grateful for what you taught me

even while you try to pull me down with you.

i’d rather give you a lifejacket.
