Sinking


Drowning alone in my mind, a raging sea
Exhausting my attempts to stay afloat
Slowing my pace treading, thrashing water
I wearily take my final breath
Water submerges me as I struggle and sink
Sinking down, calmly accepting my defeat

Comfortable thoughts of my defeat
Falling in the beautiful darkening sea
So many feelings, I want to sink
Thinking back to the times when I wanted to stay afloat
I confirm my demise, releasing my last breath
I relax my body, surrounded by water

Pressure, the overwhelming pressure of the water
Why did I ever fear my defeat?
Suffocating without another breath
It feels better when I succumbed to the sea
Why did I ever bother to try to stay afloat?
Having found myself, in a serendipitous state, I sink
