Drowning by Cathrine Nevelius

I can’t swim
I’m drowning
The sun shines
Through the water
Hitting my skin
But I don’t feel warm
I can’t breathe
I’m immobile
The water is clear
I can see your face
Such a contrast
To my tear faced one
The water pulls me
To the shore
Away from the shore
I’m drowning
You’re describing the water




Cathrine Nevelius is from a little town in Norway. Writing and reading is something she has done for as long as she can remember, and it has helped her escape. When she grows up, she wants to travel the world and write poems and stories. Her obsessions are reading, writing, her cat, hot chocolate, and Instagram.
