Drowning

  • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?

Drowning

It's raining... a silence unbroken

It's everlasting

The grayness of a broken skyline

Lay out the waters of its judgement

I beg of it to purge me

and now it darkens me with its ceaseless tears

It is my prison

I'm drowning in a tumult of emotion

Going down, under a sea, a raging field of thoughts and pain

It is destroying me

I can't break free of my meticulous, precarious situation

1,000 days 

1,000,000,000 tears

I'm drowning but not dying

My greatest fears lasts forever

Desparate to be free, but I'm going down

as if by a spell

I'm being held down, drowning

breathing out my life, not breathing anything in

I gave up because I could go on needlessly

and I had no other choice

I've drowned under my own beating heart.

this is a true example of artist work wearing his emotion on his sleeve, totally open and vunerable... I would die for this type of liberation...

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
