In Last Year's NotebookHave you ever drowned?
Oh, I have a couple times.
Well, obviously it's more like "almost drowned,"
Because I'm pretty sure I'm still "here."
It's scary, isn't it?
I mean, obviously it is, but sometimes it's really scary.
I'm talking about when nobody notices you're drowning.
Completely helpless, you try to call out but
Everyone's too far away or you're too busy drowning to be able to call.
Choking, I mean.
Oh, but the worst part is when they're looking
Right at you,
But still don't see it.
Might even yell at you to quit fooling around,
To get back to the group,
Or something like that.
That really puts you in despair.
