Lifesaver

I was treading water in comfortable promises

Satisfied with lukewarm love that

Kept me afloat

But couldn’t take me anywhere

When an unfamiliar tidal wave

Pulled me under

Cliché ocean eyes that drowned me in mystery

Until I drifted back to the surface

Coughing up water and your name
