Miss Xtraordinary

Drowning

I'm drowning,

Deeper into the sea.

Someone help me, 

I want to be free.

 

I'm drowning,

Deeper into my guilt.

Now everyone is dead,

And so is everything I built.

 

I'm drowning,

Deeper into my tears.

All I hear is screaming,

So I cover my ears.

 

I'm drowning,

Deeper into my blood.

I can't carry on,

I can't stop the flood.

 

I'm drowning,

Deeper into the dark.

I'm looking for some light,

But there's not even a spark.

 

I'm drowning,

Deeper into death.

I close my eyes,

And sigh with my final breath.

    The choice of words, the way you describe depression, the flow....is just "Xtraordinary". You are doing your pseudonym proud! Glad that you are feeling better now. As such a gifted writer, you should!

    A beautifully expressed poem of depression ... a feeling we all entertain occasionally. Well done, Miss X!

    WOW "X" ~ we all hit an all time low from time to time and you sure got low in this ode ! Pleased you climbed on to higher ground ! It is important when you reach such a low ebb not to reach for a BLADE or a BOTTLE ~~ but to remember the good days and KNOW (from experience ?) it can't last for ever ! Thanks for sharin' an' scarin' ! Thinkin' of you Love BRIAN X
