Drown my pain, not my spirit

Drown my pain, not my spirit

how odd how perverse that
all which is missed

the routine the humdrum
the week’s shopping list

that I once called painfully,
mind-numbingly dull

seems now like a life
so exciting and full

and here this distorted
reflection of me

not dying not living
just asking to be

not burning not drowning
just one more time free.
