Is it Still Called Drowning?


Is it Still Called Drowning?

A disturbing calm
drawn upon
the surface of this pond
I'm falling under water,
seemingly with ease

I wonder
and I wonder,
is it still called drowning…
if I never
struggle to breathe?

The water's calm and…
you're gone
with so much by your side-
some memories and
some dreams I had
before I died

I'm drowning without you
by my side,
while my only reason
is to have
somewhere to hide
I'm drowning without ripples
of any tide
Without a splash of desperation…
not a breeze
If you could see my face,
you'd say I was happy,
seemingly with ease

I wonder
and I wonder,
is it still called drowning…
if I never even try to breathe?
