June 16th, 2018

an: i have not posted in 2 years so this is something strange i wrote in the hope of refinding old friends, and also, i don't have an alternative posting site. and this is a fun throwback. (yes i appreciate that this is no masterpiece)

water fills my skull,

slowly, pouring in.

the skin that blankets my brain is growing soggy and detached.

sleep becomes a state of life,

sound merges together into beige growths,

i did not expect drowning to be so slow and so unapparent.


now my mind is blue,

water plants wrap my thoughts,

gelled up and uneventful.

i struggle to navigate dark purples

and the navy shades of murky waters that have flooded my head.

i always expected that to drown is to lose consciousness,

to feel your lungs burst in painful shards.

i feel my surroundings blur while oxygen still pools in,

steady breathing, slow dark nights,

wishing for company on a midnight tuesday.

traffic is still busy on the highway outside my house,

but i can’t manage to imagine any of the drivers.

connections and emotions drown,

but my eyes are still half open.

the lines about the traffic

the lines about the traffic and the drivers fucked me up good and i don't even know why

but this is a masterpiece. jesus

hey! i haven't been on in ages but sometimes i look around as a guest also.

and i'm pretty good, i'm still writing that thing i showed you from two years ago which is slightly unbelievable considering it's still only 9000 words. how about you what are you up to?

(thank you)
