Do you know what it feels like to drown

Do you know what it feels like to drown? Have you ever been so aware of everything that it slowly sinks in around you? Have you ever thought no one would find you even though there was no one around? I guess not… If you did you wouldn’t still be reading You wouldn’t be wondering if this was just another agonized teen No you would have clicked the back button Because you don’t know how it feels when imaginary water fills your lungs  When it takes all the space and you can no longer breath Or maybe you’ve just forgotten how When you want to fall to the floor crying But instead you just force a smile onto a broken face So I ask again  Do you know what it feels like to drown?
