From a Dark Place..

It’s staring at me

right in the face

and I only see it

the world doesn’t exist.

 

It’s slowly advancing

I can see it coming

I turn my head around

looking for anyone for help.

 

Where is everyone?

Can’t anyone see what’s happening?

I silently shout

Can’t anyone see it’s coming?

 

I look for a kind face

I look for reassuring hands

I listen for sweet words

I yearn for a lovely heart.

 

Yet I see nothing

Only the abyss I’m in

and it’s upon me

breathing down my neck.

 

I feel it pushing me

into ink black waters

I can hardly breathe

My head is hurting.

 

I can only think

Right before I drown

It’s going to be okay

It’s alright

It’s fine

Okay.
