Have you ever choked on water?


Drinking it

And not drowning?


Feels the same.

Like it’s necessary

And not wanted.

Like its needed,

But not needed


feels like a stubborn prick under the skin, 

a defiant artery choosing to carry impure blood,

an underlying sense of bafflement

settling over the calm of your mind,

a constant fight between tears and laughter

the pain felt when you accidentally bite your tongue


Feels like there’s no room for doubt

But plenty for denial.

And when it settles in,

It feels

Like there’s nothing

Left to know

In this world

Ever again.
