There’s a deep lake that’s anchored me down.
I’m fighting to breathe but I’m learning to drown.
My weighted essence is dragging me down.
The bubbles increase but they make no sound.
I listen for life but there is no light.
My soul and its holes are blackened from sight.
I breathe I breathe, the drops hold me tight.
Nature’s density has hastened the fight.
A fractured part has begged me to stay.
It’s tainted with love so I push it away.
Danger asked me to come out and play.
So why should I pretend I’m easily swayed.
My body goes rigid as I exchange air.
It feels the depth of the ocean in there.
Washing regret and enclosing the fear.
How much pressures can a broken vessel bear.
In momentum I float and my body it glides.
I feel at one with nature and its tides.
I drift along as I struggle with sides.
Should I continue this treacherous ride?
My mind seems frozen, no more can it take.
I’ve learnt that to live is our biggest mistake.
Acceptance of self I just cannot make.
I watch myself fade for everyone’s sake.
I’ve nearly arrived, approaching the moon.
The pain I embrace with the shadows I croon.
Abstract dreams will envelope me soon.
I rejoice and sing, I’ll see you at noon.
