i can't swim

i can't swim

i can't swim
i never have been
for a great deal of my life
i've been in a constant state of drowning
what's more scary than that?
possibly the fact that it makes sense
it makes sense why the happiest thoughts i have
can never be spoken in present tense
i know it might sound intense
or extreme
or whatever word you choose to use
but they say the truth shall set you free
should it not
what do i have to lose?
maybe now the chains will break from the anchor
i will be filled with pure relief
i will quickly learn to swim
my head will reach the surface
and then i will breathe
