I Thought You Said It Was Just A Phase

Sometimes, I find myself wondering
What it would be like to drown?
How would it feel to have the
Saltwater force itself down my throat
As the deep blue waves crushed my fragile lungs.
Sometimes, I wonder if I would fight it,
Or if I would welcome it.
It seems unusual to believe I’d welcome such a thing.
But if the water is anything
Like the stress and anxiety I deal with
As a result of all the piling school work
Then I am already drowning.
The irony is
I used to be a swimmer.
