I've been drowning for as long as I can remember.
I never find a way to keep my head above water for long.
bubbles of oxygen find their way to my lungs and I gasp,
I have a moment of peace. A moment of warmth. A moment of clarity.
A moment where I forget that I was ever drowning in the first place.
I tread water and enjoy the calm breeze.
The reflection of sun beams trace beautiful patters on my skin. I'm glowing.
Then, the bubbles pop and I am immersed in the depths
over and over. The warmth ending just as quickly as it once began.
I'm struggling just as strongly before,
& I never know which direction is up.
I don't know how much longer I can do this.
