Don't Drown

By
Take a breath now,
Don't forget to breathe
Ignore the tingling in your toes,
The trembling in your stomach,
The thoughts in your mind

Take a breath now,
Don't forget to breathe
Remind yourself that you're over him,
That it was only a crush,
That it meant nothing at all

But you know the moment your eyes connect,
You're all his
Everything you've worked so hard to protect
Becomes vulnerable in that split second,
Your heart stutters a beat,
And you bite your lip in hesitation

You can feel his eyes burning with desire,
And you can hear the sigh escaping from your lips
But you quickly suck in your breath,
And change the direction of your stare
You don't want to fall in too deep,
You're too scared you'll drown

Take a breath now,
Don't forget to breathe
Ignore the tingling in your toes,
The trembling in your stomach,
The thoughts in your mind

Take a breath now,
Don't forget to breathe
Remind yourself that you're over him,
That it was only a crush,
That it meant nothing at all
