*Within the Fog*

Image

 

Walking sluggish, slightly stepping motions rolling forward, tiptoeing through the dense fog. Fog surrounding, wrapping itself around me, with a shivering cloak touched with the drenched and misted cold air. I weep, I sigh. I wake, I cry. My lead heavy head drags from one side to the next to balance my body from falling down from bed. No shelter from the damp frigid weight I feel digging down to my core. My stomach jolts and tumbles and shouts “let me free, let me out… Send me peace from my tortured soul, make me well, make me whole”. I weep, I sigh, I wake, I cry. All I long to do is lay down and die. I know that this cannot be. As I walk on this never ending journey. A path of dead ends, where new life refuses to simply begin. The fog rolls in and I am marching in time to the beat of my dying heart pumping a near flatline. I weep, I sigh, I wake, I cry.

*Drowning*

*Drowning*

Swirling in a sea of emotions

Drowning in a hopeless gulf stream

My senses heightened, exhausted

I fear I am jolting like lightning towards the tides

Tumbling towards invisibility

Sight unseen as in the Bermuda Triangle

Unable to move or breathe

As the searing pain envelops me

In the black of the abyss

No fight is left within

Overwhelmed as sound is stifled

I yearn to lay silent and drift

As the golden streams of tears

Rush through my blood

A weighted heart is pulsing slow

Yet I awake from the pounding roar

My head rolls and eyes sore

Day after day, again and again,

Again and again I go there once more
