Swimming

It’s cold in the deep end
treading water like I mean it
like I need to stay alive
when I know I came here to die
swim cause they showed me how
not to drown on the memories that choke
me like the water that invokes my lungs
can you feel the body whispering good bye
the muscles aching in the ebony
dark and icy
you can take me
but I keep my arms moving
why?
