“There’s comfort at the bottom of a swimming pool”

on

Inspired by a line from Swimming Pool by The Front Bottoms

Sitting at the bottom of a pool

Still wearing all my clothing

Weighed down by a bag

With years of self loathing

Struggling to hold my breath

As the bag held onto me

Well actually me to it

I always had the choice to leave

But I’m not good at letting go

Plus the water hides my tears

So I’ll risk the chance of drowning

To hang on to these years
