Not drowning today
In remorse from yesterday
Sea of Love
I dive into the boundless ocean of your eyes.
And swim in the sea of your love.
When it overcomes my lungs,
I will meet my end with an inexorable wave
And drown between the light of the surface
and darkness of the depths.
stuck, like in mud.
drowning, like in water.
strangled, like in air.
lost, like in myself.
Some days we wake up on a bad note.
We don’t know why, it just happens.
When even the littlest thing can set you off.
For this, all I need is some space to breathe.
To just be alone, away from the world
From the noise of society that drowns me.
Who with their grasp hold me tight as we sink.
It settles inside
And around me,
Flooding every single corner
Every deep crevice–
Reaching every single piece
In slow waves
It washes over all of me,
In soft currents
It reaches deep inside of me;
Every part of me that aches
For your phantom touch…
I lay here in the quiet depths,
Waiting for the blackness
Within and without..
Unleash the monster from my nightmare
And devour every fragment
Of my beaten, bleeding soul…
Someone Who Loves Drowning
something that’s really hard to understand
is that you can’t save someone
who has fallen in love with drowning
you could try to send rescue boats their way
but they avoid your effort
they like the waves
the waves of sadness, tears and anxiety
they like to drown in the ocean of their mind
where they have built a home
out of despair, thoughts and hopelessness
and there’s nothing anyone could do
at the end you just have to understand,
that you will never be able to save someone
who doesn’t want to be saved
Under the Surface
When I dream
I can slip from this body down
into the seas
of the Abyss
and remember drowning
and Seeing the only beings
to ever want me
in this place
and having to turn them down
As my flesh and blood
to yet still live
Like an ocean wave
You swept me off my feet
Riding the ocean
Without a care in the world
Deeper and deeper I float
The tides pull back
I am swept over my head
Nothing underneath me
Out in the open
These are all about the drowning poems.
