Washout

by Aegis   Sep 13, 2018


You'd think after drowning repeatedly
that eventually I'd learn
how to swim.

Yet here I am,

treading water and coughing
up wasted words.

    Not sure about swimming but never stop writing. The words you are coughing up are not wastage. It's an ocean with fewer words in which others would like to drown willingly.

    The title says it all really doesn't it?? Mad it's funny to be honest that I'd come across this poem when I feel just like the title said right now unfortunately it's not just a faze either as people will say... To feel as though you're drowning on a daily basis isn't good because even those armbands won't help and you still can't keep afloat can you?
    Take care x

      Ive learned to adapt to my environment. Even if I don't have gills, I'll learn to breathe underwater at some point. Always a pleasure hearing from you :)
