The Crisis


I lost my driving force

I dived in

I flounded in an ocean of despair 

I kept my head above the water

furiously paddling against the strong current

I grew weary

and decided to give up


I gulped down the salty water

it filled my lungs and clouded my brain

suddenly fitting screaming laughing hallucinating 

my skin dissipates into the water

falling apart


my head going under

I start to enjoy the agony

the feeling of my heart slowing


suddenly I'm wrenched

kicking screaming flailing shivering gasping

like a baby taking its first breath

helpless and alien

into the world


waiting is a strangers loving arms

the stranger holds my head

they whisper that I'm loved

I will be cared for

that everything will be okay
