Common Ground

Afloat in an ocean

Where sharks scavenge underneath you

Ready to lunge at any moment;

Then all the sudden

What seems in slow motion

We thrash about

Unnoticed to anyone;

Thinking of what we used to have

Taking your scalpel

Like a slow and steady doctor

Rip out my heart

Piece by Piece;

Reach out

To try to grab you hand,

Anything to grip

Anything to keep close

Anything I can trust.

That’s when I notice,

That time is changing

I need to let go

All that we had befor
