FALLING UNDER Looking back it all seemed so long ago. What ever happened to the child I know? What was it I lost along the way? I cry. I lost myself again. Falling under. Drowning in dark waters. Drowning in tears of lost innocence. Running forward, I search for a light. But just like before, I trip and fall back under. I cry. I lost myself again. Falling under. Drowning in dark waters. Drowning in tears of sorrow. I reach for the skies in search of the light. But dark are the skies, Closed were my eyes, And I continued to sink farther under. I cry. I lost myself again. Falling under. Drowning in dark waters. Drowning in tears of regret. I opened my eyes, But dark remained the skies. My eyes were open, But I still could not see. I was running forward. I should have ran through. I cry. I lost myself again. Falling under. Drowning in dark waters. Drowning in tears of meaningless success. There was someone who lifted my soul. The part of me I thought I had lost. The other half that I had longed for. A glimmer in the dark waters. When she was around, I wanted to break through. When she was gone, I slipped back under... I cry. I lost myself again. Falling under. Drowning in dark waters. Drowning in tears of what I should have said. The next time I turned around There shown the light I sought, Shining ever so warmly. I embraced the light, Yet turned my back, And chose to dive back under... I cry. I cry again. Falling farther... Now I dive deeper under. Drowning in dark waters. Drowning in tears of joy. No longer falling under, Just through, I willingly dive deeper into the dark waters. If I am to fall forever, Then all that I ask is to fall with you.
