Poetry

Yes… Actually No.

I tried to cry but gasped
And now you think
You take my breath away
Which you do I suppose
In the not-good
“I can’t breathe” kind of way
I tried to sigh but cried
Now you see yourself
In the salt-water on my face
Your reflection planted on my lips
My lungs breathing for us both
I tried to gasp but lied
I don’t think you believed me
When I said yes
Where I meant no
You always could see through it though
My eager-to-please exterior
