I swam among a sea of red
But I was blind to the danger
And hope kept me floating
Towards an island
I’d never reach.
I was diminished by your ocean
But foolishly I swam
Hoping I would find you
But you were so high above me
In my mind
Looking the other way
And couldn’t see me trying
Or did not want to.
So eventually I sank
The red pulling me down
Barely able to breathe
Suffocated by your shadow
And deceived by my own delusion.
