Escaping Death!!

Escaping Death!!

1 min 226 1 min 226

There’s a world I’ve created for us

Where nothing else matters but you.

There’s a dream I keep building

Knowing one day it will

Come crashing on my heart.


There’s a fire I keep fuelling

To keep me from becoming

Cold-hearted.

There’s a life that feels like

It’s slipping away slowly from my hands

And I am letting it slip away

Because I don’t know how to hold on to it.


Breathing feels like

I am escaping death

One breath at a time,

’Cause every breath feels

Heavier than before.

Guess I shouldn’t have ignored

The red flags that kept hurting me

In a way that burnt my soul.


I remember there was a time

When you were all

I ever needed to be happy,

But now, all I wanna do is

To remember how to be happy again,

To not let you scar me

For waiting on you,

To bring back my old self I was

Before I met you

And before breathing started feeling like

Escaping Death!!
