Off the Deep End

Just an old guy
Off the deep end
Jumped off
a while ago

Just an old guy
Off the deep end
What can
I possibly know

Just an old guy
Off the deep end
Been under for
a while.

I Surface every now
And then
spill a few
And breathe
And then
back down again
in undertow

Just an old guy
Off the deep end
Swimming
in The deep
Awake, asleep
Just an old guy off
In The deep
So nice to have
you watching
While I bob.

You probably have
heard It all
in so many
different ways
When I come up
from under
What is it, can I say ?
Maybe there’s
A reason for these
Gasping,
Breaths and closes,
Lips releasing words.

It’s just so good
to have you with me
there
whatever day,
Whatever the
constant drowning
Causes me to say.
