Swimming Under the Red Sun

Swimming to the finish line

Putting you behind.

Killing the past

To accept the present

To accept the future

That doesn’t include you

I run away to la la land

To cope with pain I don’t understand

I let myself go down the rabbit hole

To hit rock bottom and climb again

Swimming up just to break the surface

Breathing to fill my lungs

And with deep sighing and shallow breathing

I make my way under the red sun.
