You made me smile for 394 days, and knew exactly how to destroy it within a matter of twelve seconds.
you were drowning.
so i jumped into the ocean to save you,
but i didn’t know how to swim.
you couldn’t breathe.
so i ripped open my chest to give you my lungs,
but you watched and let me choke.
you were crying.
so i held you to let you cry on my shirt,
but your tears burned through the fabric and left stains on my skin.
you were leaving me.
so i swallowed my words,
but they came back up my throat and broke my teeth.
