Drowning

The lights are out.  There’s no doubt in my mind that the screams and shouts were real.
How do you feel anything at all when your hopes seem lost and your dreams appeal to the past.

Uncontrollable fasts and sleepless nights block the streams that flowed so pure.
Flood waters cure me of the ailments that happiness once bestowed, my mind remains in tow.
Forever behind the present, thoughts of self resentment are all to be seen below the turbulent surface.

Gasping for air, my lungs despair, the deep is all they find.
Freezing truth fills my chest, my legs are bound and my heart arrests when you leave.

Smoke and mirrors once made clear my fears but now all I see is you…floating away.
