What You Did in the Dark

"I know it's weak of me to give up.
I don't want to. But it's like drowning.

Nobody wishes to die, alone in a cold dark ocean.
But there's only so long they can keep their head
above the waves until they realize that no one is
coming to save them, and they're never going to
find their way back to shore. Sooner or later, the
body gives up. It can't endure anymore. Maybe it
could fight to suffer one or two moons, but for
what point? The ending is the same. It's not that
death suddenly becomes an attractive thought.
It's just the notion of living is so much uglier.

I used to feel like I was drowning...
so I stopped trying to swim."
