the weight of my failures overwhelmed me
i could feel myself drowning, bobbing for air
i couldn't breathe or cry out for help
and then you saw me
you had no idea what i was going through
or how all the lights in my mind had shut off
but you smiled, and you talked
(like you always do)
you made it feel easy,
like i was actually succeeding at something
you laughed at me
and made me laugh
and some days i just need someone
who is so carefree and pure that they can help me forget my troubles.
what would we do without friends?
