it’s been a long time now
since no time has passed
since you were under water.
it was so recently that
it was only yesterday when
my chest did that thing where my heart feels like it’s being squeezed in the best and the worst way at the same time.
i imagine that’s how it felt to be under water.
you came up for air and
everything was clear and
why did i teach you how to swim if you were only wanted to float.
it’s been only a second
since years were erased and
my chest did that thing where my heart feels like it’s being squeezed but only in the worst way.
this is what it feels like to be under water but
everything is not clear.
