I am glass
Your love is my water
It submerges my heart
I drown
I can’t sip it
I can only swallow it
Gulp! Gulp!
It surrounds my every being
I’m helplessly drowning
I wish I could float
But I’m sinking
I’m so scared I’ll bloat
The clear blue waters of this love is intriguing
They say love is blind but I can see
I see blue
I see you
I can see through
It is oh so beautiful!
Your touch is so warm unlike the temperature of your love
Your touch…Your love
You are like two separate beings
But from one loving soul
You emit different flavours
Different traits
Different colours
Your love leaves me uncertain
Sometimes I get confused
Yet I still love you
I still get intoxicated
I still drown
Sinking daily
Losing control of me
Drowning deeper
Not seeing the ground
Teach me to thread carefully
Teach me to swim
Teach me not to break
Cos my being is made of glass
And once I hit the ground
I’ll shatter
I’m the glass in your water
