The Seaweed is Always Greener

I slowly sink down under the blue

I can’t breathe

I can only hear the comforting warm noises that the water makes as it circulates around my eardrums

I can see only the sun that has been dyed blue and green by the water as it rushes in to caress me further into its depths

My lungs are screaming

but the rest of me is perfectly still

completely comforted

at home

I don’t want to go back up for air

even though my lungs beg me to

and, suddenly, I realize I don’t have to

I don’t have to return to an abusive father

a sick mother

a life full of sad

angry

pitiful

pain

I can be happy for the rest of my life in this beautiful blue bed

as I fall deeper into the rest of my life

all of my problems seem

solved
