Deepest Depths of Depression

Deepest depths of an ominous ocean

finding myself sinking down so so far

cool water fills my lungs as I breathe in

desperately my arms reach, but what for?

They tell me that the sky above waves is blue

yet down here at the bottom, it is dark

there’s no light for me to try to swim to

just a shark to rip out my beating heart.

Teeth sharp as razor blades tear mortal flesh

blood escapes my veins painting waters red

pain is all I feel as I pray for death

why can’t I ever escape my own head?

This depression crippled me, I can’t swim

but buoyantly I must bounce back again.
