Underwater Bedroom

my bedroom’s underwater
i can’t breathe

i can’t sing these words out loud
when i open my mouth
only bubbles of carbon dioxide escape

i can still picture the shade of red on the end of my cigarette
or the shade of red that glows from the upside-down exit sign
all that and myself now appear only in aquamarine
i’m confined to it like present times
or the inside of a spaceship after take-off

yet it still feels like home
homesickness and all
still feels like an 80’s simulation of the future
with life happening before my eyes

all the music sounds muffled and distant
the water bottled inside between the door and the windows

i seem to be drowning with no time limit
so i swim around in my bed to pass time
trying to locate a sense of solace
trying to compile a collection of experience

i’m underwater with the lights on
sometimes i allow the water to take control of my movements
other times i remain motionless
suspended under the pressure

everything comes in waves
it gets lonely in this blue bedroom
unsure if these letters i write ever make it out to dry
