I drown….

Head above water my crown bumps noses with the rafters in my bedroom
I spent my whole day horizontally with a splitting migraine
shaky vision and skewed thoughts
until I started crying
and the tears never stopped
Saline solution dripping from some unruly faucet
turned indoor ocean featuring a kraken and all
I have nearly filled the room to the brim, now
I’m treading water and angling my face
so I may gulp down those last few breaths of air
before even the brim is engulfed
and I am wholly submerged
This is the end
This is where
I drown

One thought on “I drown….
