No Swimming

One
day
I’ll
wake
up

And
I won’t
feel
this
strong

So
you’ll
find
me

Drowned
in the
river

And
back
where
I belong

    1. I’m sorry to read that John.
      A very difficult situation I’m sure.

      This was one I’d written sometime ago when my overarching mood was a little more bleak.

      I’d never post any suicidal ideation poems in real time as I know they can trigger / upset people.

      I find one of the ways for me to work through my darker periods is to write about them. It can help me to order my thoughts more when I see them on the page.

      I hope everything works out for your friend. A lot of people have struggled during recent times.

      Thank you for checking in with me. That means a lot πŸ–€πŸ–€

      1. I’m so glad to hear that. I was worried. My friend is doing all right though his financial troubles which triggered the episode remain. There is the problem of that scar around his neck but hopefully that will fade

      2. I’m sorry for worrying you. That was certainly not my intention. I’ll be fine.

        With regards to your friend – scars may fade but support from friends will mean everything πŸ–€πŸ–€
