hold me down

and from below the corner of my eye
I see the life I once loved
and the person I once knew
but it's just not us

the water's running wild
and I can't stop moving forward

there's no such thing as
there's no such thing as

on purpose

there's this glitter in your eyelids
and mouths taste sour
forgetting is betting
wounds won't heal by the hour

from the corner of my eye
you're slipping away
grabbing me from my chest
and pulling down


but not for long

I'm not your stray dog no more

I wasted all this time
all my future
half a year
precious time
for someone
who doesn't care
and for someone
who doesn't understand
