Drinks And Daily Deaths
Do you believe that you belong
In that drowning sensation
Where you’re safe as long as
You’re constantly inundated?
Can I save you, or is it too late
To place you next to me
Where it’s safe, dry and free
From the perilousness of fallacy?
Do you see clearer with it
Instead of resting upon my dress?
Growing apart, drifting away
All it’s ever going to do is hurt you
I see you smitten, betrothed to it
I am helpless, you are lost in its seas
But it is evident that these daily deaths
Would eventually bring us together
Were you really funny?
Or was just I really taken with you?
Those attempts for humor,
they were evident.
Yet fully understood or not,
it got me giggling each time.
But you no longer look at me
the way you did before.
I guess the real joke is on me.
