What’s the feeling you try, but can’t explain
The one that tends to block blood flow from your veins?
Oxygen suspended, like outer space
Go ahead, take a breath before you suffocate.
Call up your “friends” for breath and support
After all, that’s what they’re there for
Right? No, I forget, it’s on their accord
Which, conveniently, never seems to match yours.
Breathe in, now breathe it all out
You can’t breathe and you’re screaming out
For help, SOS, but they can’t hear you now
Be strong until your scream is loud…
…enough for someone to intervene
enough for you to be seen
enough for you to stop your screams
Until, you’re enough…
They say you are, but they won’t prove
How friendship isn’t something you lose
How love works, without any bruise
How time doesn’t matter when it’s someone you’d never use.
Don’t expect your love to be returned
But don’t expect to always be burned
Don’t forget your shine when you happen to learn
Someday comes, and it’ll be your turn.
