Pretend It’s Heaven

I’m drowning

lungs engulfed by black oceans

heart choking on salty tears

they told me not to fight it, that the struggle would suck me in deeper

so I allowed it

I drifted away into the grips of my misery

I let the poisoned beaches fade from sight as icy blue dragged me deep

I guess what they forgot to mention was,

for some,

the pain can often feel like pleasure,

that dying is easy when you can pretend you’re going to heaven
