Some say you can only drown if you’ve never learned to swim
But maybe I just can’t swim all by myself
Or maybe the water was just too deep
Maybe my feet couldn’t reach the sand
Maybe my efforts didn’t make it out of the sea
Some say that dragons can’t be burned
Their thick skin and scales are enough to keep them safe
But my skin is thin
And this fire comes from within
And have you ever heard of a harness that protects itself?
Some say that spiders know their web so well
They could never be confused by its anatomy
But I am no spider
And sometimes I don’t even recognize my own house
My face is a stranger
And my mind is an abandoned place
Why am I drowning in the oceans that lay in my own eyes?
Why do I get burned by the fire that hides inside myself?
Why am I stuck in a web that no other than I created?
And why am I tangled in my own mind?
Maybe I am just too much
Or to keep safe
Or maybe I still have a lot
In this life
