Loving You Felt Like Drowning.

You were an ocean and I was the diver who forgot the oxygen tank.

You tell everyone how easy you think I have it,

because there is a smile and pretty clothes worn.

Because when you yell and fight me I no longer cry.

You never did ask me why I made it look so easy.

Because out of a drunken love stupor

I could finally start to see why and how you felt:

To blame the one who cannot argue their case.

It was never easy to forget how it felt to be with you:

your love for me was a diver who lost their oxygen tank.

I was a swimmer in your ocean, and with one wrong move

my life in a canteen was ripped away leaving me alone.

Some people can hold their breath longer than others,

but we are all human, and still need the precious oxygen.

A sailor with an anchor tied to their foot can only stay a float

for a few seconds before darkness surrounds them.

It was your words and your love that went into my brain

like the salt water invasion to a sailor's lungs.

All of the warnings and red flags were the fish

surrounding me, but their words never touching me.

At first it is only the small fish that run away from the anchor

but as I'm dragged to the floor my fingers clawing the water

with nothing to hold onto even the larger fish cannot help me.

The ending is the same, I drowned myself in your love

and yet I find myself on shore aching and raw, but I survived.

Everyone should be excited about Pride week right? Well that can be a rather complicated question, when your Pride week happens on a Jesuit campus.

13 Reasons Why is Wrong

Suicide isn't a tool for revenge or emotional blackmail

'13 Reasons Why'
We've all had the privilege of watching, dissecting, and appreciating hundreds of films and television shows. Few, however, have stirred as much visceral emotion in me as the Netflix series, "13 Reasons Why." A cauldron of controversy, the show's well-intentioned aim to highlight the severity of teenage bullying, depression, and suicide..

Friday Night Lights

The sound of helmets clashing. The brightness of stadium lights. The sight of a roaring crowd. The countdown until kick off. This is what every fall Friday night is all about. The rush of excitement is out of this world. Football season.
