How to Breathe While Drowning


My peace
My peace is silence
My peace is submersion
My peace is suspension
My peace is the breath

The breath after straining for air
While the darkness creeps in

The breath after uncontrollable sobbing
While anxiety takes over

The breath after the crushing realization
I'm alone

I'm alone
I'm submerged
Suspended
Breathless

Yet my heart beats
Yet my body wakes
Yet my heart aches
I'm alive

Drowning
But slowly learning to swim
