being

By , Brookline, MA
do you ever feel
like you're
drowning?
crushed beneath the weight
of the things you did?
do you ever feel
like you're
suffocating?
choking on your own
regrets?

i watch people swim by
they see my flailing
arms
my mouth soundlessly screaming
for help.
but they look away.

i do not sink
or float
just remain
suspended between worlds.
not dying
not living
just being.
