It feels like I’m drowning

And no one wants to throw me a line

Or maybe

They do

Maybe

They did

Maybe

Their line was too short

And I couldn’t grab on

But don’t tell me

it’s my fault

Because soon enough

I was too far gone

You stopped throwing the line

You walked away

You gave up

Yet

I was still there

Fucking drowning

Grabbing for something

Gasping for air

For life

For survival

But you go around

Telling everybody

“She simply gave up”

I’m still here

Going under

Arms reached up

Searching

Longing

For the surface

I just can’t swim

Against

The stones

You tied at my feet.
