I eat too much to die

and not enough to live

and I claim that I try

but I can’t say

how much effort I really give


my body is shutting down

but I’m past the point of feeling it

it’s like I’ve already drowned

and I only think a bit

of regret

living numb takes the rest away


I’m closer

To under

Than over
