Why does my own heart begin to sabotage
The bliss and sweetness of new
Questions and darkens and anxiety obsessed
Have you noticed the panic in my voice?

I thought I knew how to swim and tread
But the currents in this water are unfamiliar
Struggling to control my feet but they’re
Gone from under me

Stinging from the weightier cold
My heart, stop treading stop swimming
Float again and grab the sunlight
Shay shay across the warm luminescent surface

And learn to trust again
