Down in the deepest depths
of an ominous ocean
I find myself sinking down,
drowning in a dark depression.
Cool water fills my lungs,
I breathe in desperately,
my arms flailing hopelessly-
but what for?
I’m told the sky above these waves is blue,
yet down here at the bottom, it is dark.
There is no light for me to swim to,
just a creature waiting to rip out my heart.
Teeth sharp as razor blades
tear my mortal flesh,
blood escapes my veins
painting waters red.
Pain is all I feel, and I pray for death,
Why can’t I ever escape my own head?
