Like I keep injecting myself

So temporary

That feeling of freedom

But then i am liberated


Freed from my own mind

The voices don’t yell in my head



Then it wears off,

The typewriters don’t click

And the feeling comes again

It washes over me


It drowns me.


Struggling for air

I reach for oxygen

For anything


And suddenly

Although it’s blurry

I see someone else in these waters


I grab a hand

It holds mine


I lie above the water


Never more alive.
