Drowning in the Day

Drowning in the Day

A Poem by Sarah Marie


I think it would be nice

To fall and never be caught

Yet never hit the ground,

To slowly drown

Without dying-

To simply fade

Into the push and pull

Of currents encompassing me

And dark waves taking me

Far, far away-

To somehow float

Within the ocean,

To flow in slow-motion.

I think it would feel nice

To be carried out to sea

If not even death could touch me,

If no one could find me

In the shelter of shielding waters.

I could listen to the conch shells

Scraping the salt and sand below me;

I could hear the ocean’s song

As if it were the siren luring me

Farther out to where the water is most deep.

No burdens could claim me,

No pain could maim me

If I could drown without suffering-

Suffering is something I already know

From drowning in the demands

Of every dragging day.
