Drowning In Love

I'm sorry that you don't understand.
I'm sorry that your heart has a burn.
I apologize for causing your pain.
But love I could not return.
So you tied my ankles,
You tied my hands,
Put a knife to my lips
But I didn't give in.
"You put yourself here!"
Your eyes water as you scream.
So painful it's an illusion,
Almost a terrifying dream.
A chair of broken glass I sit.
"You crossed the line!"
My ears start to bang,
Blood runs from my spine.
Your fingers grab my face
The way you used to...
But as I look in your eyes...
It's not the real you.
Suddenly you kiss me,
Hard and with reason.
And then you throw me in the water
And my whole body freezes.
Your reflection fades
The deeper I fall
But so does our memories,
And that is the best of it all.
My heart lays on the ocean floor
And you're somewhere along the stars...
Some say our love was too extreme...
But that's just the way we played our cards.
