Fish Out Of Water

A fish in air
Cannot breathe
The same is said
For me

My air is love
I breathe in hugs
To speak I give
But what am I to do
When deprived?

What is the answer?
Sugar and sweet
Help me forget
The need to breathe
For a moment or two

When I am sad,
I suffocate
The air-it isn't

It feels as though
I am drowning
Where I am not a fish
The sea is full of color
I cannot appreciate

The color all around me
Is like the air I breathe
It exists, but I cannot tell
To open my eyes
I burn my lungs

So even though
The air is there
I suffocate
Like a fish
Out of water
