swimming
into the eyes of nothing
zoning...

it doesn't
seem to
matter anymore

drowning...

you know
I can't swim

even when
you throw
me
a floaty toy
you know
the kind
even two year old's
know how to use
but I never applied
myself to
such forms
of precaution
obviously
my mum was
right
I am a late bloomer

whatever...

she
pushed
me
into
adulthood
before
I could
even tie my shoes...

doesn't matter...

i've far
passed feeling sorry for
myself
never was
able to study
that subject well
anyways
but was able
to rack up
brownie points
in depression 101
tho
could never
swallow
force fed love...

doesn't matter...

just
let me
drown
not to get attention
just never
was able
to be that type of person
but just maybe
because
it feels
real...



If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

as long as it makes you feel real
sink or swim, you win
