I lead a tortured existence

existing between



and just barely swimming.

it is the curse of those

in love with the water

so in love

they could never

understand why anyone

would force themselves to

swim above it

water should fill your lungs

suffocate superfluous sound

crush in soft waves

against your skin

you should be immersed in it

water should fill your senses

yours is not to conquer it

but to feel it



immerse yourself.


and this is the torture of existence

we are taught that to survive

is to learn the mechanisations of

this world

to be of this world

to swim

anything else is drowning or floating


Yet ,

water is sensory

it begs for us to emote


feel so much that

we could burst


Immerse yourself

 while you are
