drown

i’d drown out my thoughts
with the notes and the beats
to forget the empty chairs
and hollow smiles.

i’d drown out my thoughts
with words and pretenses
to bury the tears for the unfound,
and the faded faces of the past.

i’d drown out my thoughts
with stories carried by the wind to my ears,
to shy away from the questions
i never had the answers to.

i’d drown out my thoughts
with the will to stifle these tears
with the short lived strength to trample these fears
for now, then tomorrow again,

until i can, as long as i can.
