Is a blessing
And a curse.
I haven’t
Felt lighter
Or worse
Than when I rode
The waves
Of indifference.

Keeps the current
At bay.
With it,
We can’t be swept away.
Without it,
I lost sight of the shore,
Forgot what there was
To fight for.

The apathy
Dragged me
Out to sea
Where it tried
To drown
The love in me.
