I’ve been floating in this ocean.
I thought I was doing alright.
But without notice I began slipping under the surface.
I kicked, and kicked, and kicked, and slowly,
I begin to lose my breath.
Panicking, kicking, even screaming,
Why can’t any of you hear me
My lungs are burning from a lack of oxygen
Each innocent grasp towards sunlight,
just brings me an additional ten feet under.
Without air, without my precious breath,
I blacked out.
Waves are reoccurring, yet somehow,
you still let me drown each time.
