I was simply taking a sip of coffee
When I started thinking about what we used to do

How funny it was…

And when I laughed
I choked so hard that I got a sick pain in my gut
Like it was filling up with blood
Like my insides shifted gears
And my heart was pumping tears


Pain scratching up my throat…

Laughter drowning in my heart…
Tears enveloping my eyes…
And it was then
When I began to understand
How
Life has a way of personifying our deepest feelings
When we’re not paying attention

So…

With pain enveloping my eyes, tears scratching up my heart,
And a nervous laugh drowning in my throat…

I just wanted to tell you
That
I almost fucking choked to death
Over all the time that we spent happy
Over all the years that we spent laughing
Over all the things that sl i pp e d

Away

Gradually…

I almost fucking choked to death
Over all the love I have for you

Pain enveloping my heart…
Laughter scratching up my throat so as to avoid drowning my eyes in tears…

I almost fucking choked to death
When I thought about what we used to do

They would’ve said that
Coffee killed me…

But we’d both know the truth
