Made to Drown

IMG_7570

I tried
bridging the shores,
tried plotting our course,
two different souls
going wherever the wind blows

but my survival was tied
to a sinking ship,
your bloodthirsty words
leaving my defenses
slashed to ribbons

So, I learned that some structures
are made to come tumbling down,
all that was left
now floating with death

I guess some hearts were made to drown
