Overestimated You


Your grasp is tight around my neck
With a hand over my mouth
Leaving me a galaxy of purple and blue
My eyes remain closed to avoid the blur of reality
That surrounds me
I am scared
Not just because I have few fogging breaths left
But because I feel no pain or fear at all
The constant feeling of drowning
Bubbles leaving my nose
Water filling my lungs
Waves crashing over my head
You push me under
Yet still I feel afloat
You take hold of my limbs
Yet still I feel free
You fill my mind with echoing whispers
That endlessly ring
Yet still I hear clearly
How is it that I'm suffocating
Yet still I feel strength
Perhaps I've overestimated you
And underestimated myself
