We're keeping afloat

We're keeping afloat
Rate this poem

Hanging around this sinking ship, how’d this start?
you’re breaking down, and you’re falling apart
Splinters of you in my skin
apart of me now, you’re breaking in
Let’s recover that old treasure chest
grab our memories and burn the rest
Dusting off reminders is an act so jaded
looking back at a picture now faded
So I will rebuild you one more time
commit just one more crime
Piece by piece I put you back together
out alone in this stormy weather
I show you my weakness
but thru your eyes Im speechless
So close those eyes, enjoy the ride
and imagine the things we’ll learn tonight
“We’re keeping afloat.” Yeah you might be right
but everything seems so black or white
So open those eyes, see the grey
I’ve boarded a lifeboat, and floated away.
