Oxygen

One step
and I fell
down,
down,
into the dark.

You promisd you
would save me,
keep me afloat.

But I remember those
lies well,
as the tears flood
everything I know.

I want to drown in them,
but the bitterness and
lump in my throat
won't allow.

One day I will be
on my own and I'll
breathe without
you.
