I go over each and every word with my pen.
I highlight my “ands” and cross out my “thens”.
The focus should be, on the weight my heart holds
Not how it was strong once and I let it fold.
Each word took me time, so they should be read slowly
Each line meant to punish every claim that you know me.
I didn’t write this to change things, that would be hopeful thinking
it’s just a note in a bottle, that can float whilst I’m sinking.
