It felt like drowning,
yet no one could pull me out of the water.
It felt like a pressure on my chest,
but I was alone in this room.
Once it felt like a burning in my heart,
the kind that made me smile for days on end.
Then it felt like drowning again,
mixed with fire and all I could see was you.
It felt like years,
before I could smile like I once did,
but then I did again,
and it felt like floating.
