Alone

I tried to tell you where I was going

I thought our eyes aligned

but you started drifting and I held my breath

We were dancing with ideas

And diving into streams

And when I looked down you weren't holding my hand

Drowning, you said

Pleading, I cried

For you were the one who helped me float

You climbed out of the stream, dry

I followed you, lost

And here I stand in a puddle on my own
