Misplaced Missive #43 – Drowning

Driven so deep under,
Can’t tell which way to breathing,
Which way to surrender…

Do I dare try to break the surface?
Always just out of reach,
Too many strokes away,
Can’t make it through
The rolling waves,
Need to be saved,
All that’s left is prayer.

Words muffled by the water,
Insulated from ears that would listen,
And hands that would offer,
Salvation from the darkness.

Responsibility chained
Obligations unchanged
Keep dragging me down.

I’m drowning in it all.
