Better Off

Better Off

Are you better off than when we found you?
Are you better off, indeed.
Are you better off than when we found you?
Are you better off with me? We’ll see.

Are you conscious of the worlds we’ve traveled?
Are you conscious of our greed?
Are you with me as our time unravels,
Or are you lost in the disease? With me.

Are you better off than when we found you?
Are you better off, indeed.
Are you better off than when we found you?
Are you better off with me? We’ll see.

As I conjugate the restless babble
As we lie awake (asleep)
The virus that you started brought the world around you
Crashing down upon its knees. Just breathe.

Please breathe.

Sometimes it takes oblivion to see horizons.
I can’t see you because I’m not there.
