Drowning in waters of storm I flail desperately to keep my head above the glimmering surface. Invisible to the ones I need the most my plea for help leaves my lips unheard And so I drown with no company save my shadow. I want to get drunk on the stars to have their luminescent light fill my being and fill in the cracks left by my scars. So I swallow shards of glass in a futile attempt to end the pain I close my eyes and let them shred who I am who I used to be. But when the stained slivers fill my gut all I feel is cold numbness All I hear are their words so carefully cruel slashing into me like knives. So I curl up in a ball on the bottom of the lake and let myself drown Into darkness Into oblivion. -Esther L. Krenzin- -Roguesong-
Sometimes what we think might save us from ourselves, only harms us further.
