I‘m jostled into the sea,
By my own frenzied nonsense.
A dispiriting pit coiling towards demons afraid of sunlight,
Oh the murky underworld,
It greets me.
Do humans sink or float,
When an erratic force knocks them down?
Because I don’t know how to swim.
That unexpected heart beat,
Pounding uncontrollably.
The tense muscles in my face,
And streams of terror oozing from the eyes that wish to be blind.
The heat on my face,
And blood rushing to my head whilst my mind fogs of panic.
Of flushed reddened cheeks,
I fear of dying.
I’m suffocating from unease,
This ocean,
Oh how it’s eating me!
As I descend into a world of gloom,
I give up the fantasies that were too wild and senseless,
And everything beautiful planted in my imagination,
Until I become soulless.
Everything became unreachable,
Once I was thrown into the sea,
That pessimistic pit.
Embarrassment,
It drowned me.
