I once met a boy who lured my soul
to shipwreck with the melody of
his longing for someone else,
from another time.
“Do not fall for his fragile heart,
for it is not your hands
that can piece it back together”
they all warned me.
But my collapsing lungs
forgot to resist his voice
pulling me too deep to even breathe.
And I haven’t seen the sun ever since.
