Day 28 – Underwater


My shoulders,

Could be tearing apart from inside.

My hair ropes down,

And no matter what I do,

I can’t fully scrub the scent of chlorine from my skin.



I think I breathe best underwater.


Day 12 – Chlorine Withdrawal

yet again, college and work and life has gotten the better of me with this blog… but i promise i’ve been writing each day anyway. so enjoy triple poems this sunday!

Chlorine Withdrawal

today, feels like an endless day
of writing poems.
the words seem to unjumble in my head,
as my thoughts seems to complicate.
maybe i just need a release,
maybe a cleansing, 
maybe i need to dunk my head in the water and inhale.
i’ve never felt so lost and so found.
