I drowned myself

Legs in the air,

I fall back into the water.

Last  night I drowned myself.

Last night I deliberately took the long way round home.

I keep piercing these mental wounds  open,

with the sharp lid you left by the bin.

Last night I opened my heart to a stranger,

I drowned myself.

Doubted myself.

I let myself down.
