People don’t change
They dance around the consistency
of who they are destined to become anyway,
the way we did together

Sway, and I danced with you,
and we pretended for an instant
that we were not afraid,
that together we were invincible

God, we were stunning
Shocking, like a train wreck
Surprising, like a tragedy,
Shattered, we were beautiful

So take me now, again
Grab my hands, I’ll clutch yours
Drown with me, lover
in gorgeous deceit

And, as your lungs burst,
When the fear flares,
don’t forget to hold tight,
Because together, we’re invincible
