I followed you
To make a new life for us,
Which was a gamble,
Although I never take risks
And I wish I hadn’t.
I gave up what I had
Now I start again from nothing,
Nobody knows me, or cares to,
In this lonely place,
And I wish I had stayed behind.
I still listen to your breathing
Try to time it with mine:
In-hold, two, three- and out, two, three, and four
I realise that I still love you
But sometimes I wish I didn’t.
If my wishes could carry me away
We would float off
Quietly, in the night,
Where I would sleep alone without thinking of you
For a while.
