(iii) CORAL.
or, “Deeper.”
November 2014.


I wouldn't bother, if I were you, to pump the water from my lungs, 'cause I don't want to live anymore
I'm so tired and I don't sleep and I'm consumed and there's a hole and these are all things I've said and sung before
Breathing, breathing, in and out, I feel the air inflate my chest and slowly, surely, seep straight out again
I feel like it's only time, I've come to terms with what's to pass, now it's just a matter of when

You're in the bathtub, water's rising, I'm afraid you're going to drown
My knees are curled against my frame, I lean and wish for a way out
I never say the right thing; why do you keep me around?

I wouldn't stress myself, if I were you, about the things that I will do, because you won't have to deal with me
I'm not perfect, no-one's perfect, even I can recognise that but perfection is what you want to see
All our problems come from the things you want from me that I don't know how to give, or maybe I just won't
You like to tell me that I don't see things the same way that you do, and I would say you're right—maybe I don't

I'm fucking crying, and you're lying on my bed and you don't care
Maybe I'm wrong but you're so distant, far away, and over there
I'm lost and stuck and feel so bad and wish I'd vanish in thin air

I am losing pieces of the person whom I want myself to be
There is no-one inside to meet the expectations you have for me
It feels like way too much and I am small and I can't hold it all
