I'm Drowning

November 19, 2018


i can't breathe,
i'm underwater,
trying to grab for the surface...

                but i can't breathe.

i'm holding my breath,
trying not to swallow,
the water...

                but it's already in my lungs.

i can't see,
i shut my eyes,
to keep out the chloride...
                   but my eyes are already blurred and red.

i can't breathe.
i'm underwater,
and i can't see.
                    i'm drowning.
Just got done reading "R.I.P. Eliza Hart" by Alyssa Sheinmel

    I'm a swimmer and this totally encapsulates my biggest fear! I love the way you structured your poem, it feels as if with every extra stanza, the character falls/drowns deeper :)
