BreathlessI sink to the bottom of the poolBreathless2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My body and mind fully immersed
Down here there is no one to be cruel
No one to make me feel cursed.
Down here only I exist
No one to disapprove
Down here there are no clenched fists
No one to judge my every move.
Down here I finally feel alive
No more trying to find hope
Down here I finally have the urge to survive
No one telling me how to cope.
Down here I only see beauty
No more scarring of my mind
Down here there is no constant cruelty
No more smiles to try and find.
Down here there is no happiness to feign
No more attempting to make peace
Down here I can feel no pain
No more trying to fix things piece by piece.
But now through these depths I must swim
Make my way back into the world.
I re-enter this life limb by limb
As I lie on the surface, my body unfurled.

Tumbling, passing,it's racing by;
I can feel it slipping.
No time to gaze up at the sky;
too afraid of tripping.
You're forced upon this one-way street,
stuck in constant motion.
Having it shoved beneath your feet,
someone else's notion
The sand is falling grain by grain,
your time is running out.
Other's efforts have been in vain;
erase traces of doubt
You were born to fulfill this role,
changing their direction.
You have the power to save us all
in your sole possession
We weren't meant to stand in a line;
to be told what to be.
Teach them that different is fine,
so we can be set free

My heart is a blackened hole
A cave in my chest
