On Water

If I could find the right words to say to express how I’m feeling I would

But I’ve noticed more and more that when tragedy strikes we become speechless

Like a body floating on water

Lifeless

Not knowing the difference between drowning or breathing

Feeling heavy but staying so light

Apart of you wants it to end and the other part of you feels good submerged under the water

teetering

knowing one wrong shift could bring you to an endless abyss

So you lay there on water not knowing what to do

Speechless

breathing but in a way still drowning
