murky waters

I’m swimming upwards through the darkness

Holding my breath, searching for the surface

The dark waters are clouded with my thoughts

Entangling me in infrangible knots

The veiled silence is threatening to drown me

With murky waters continuously rising around me

My soul’s growing weary, the fight in me diminishing

The void patiently waiting for the chance to finish me

My body finally goes limp, having lost all hope

With nowhere to go I let myself just float

Waiting for the pit of nothingness to devour me

I’ve accepted my fate and it’s lost all power over me

No longer snarled by my burdensome thoughts

I’ve drifted to the surface finding the peace I’ve for so long sought
