Falling

By 14th June 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

As I tumble down through the depths to the darkness below
I wonder if anyone noticed me go
The pitch black folds around me
Making it impossible to see

As I descend to the watery abyss below
Bubbles around, rising to the surface they flow
I look up and can imagine their attempt to flee
Away from the clutches of the ever enveloping sea

The pressure crushes against me, as I drop below
The place from whence there is no return is where I go
Creatures brush against me, in the gloom I cant make them out
But my mind fills with images of creatures to fear, there is no doubt

I reach up in a desperate attempt to ascend out of the nightmare
But my hand grasps nothing but water, there is no hand there
To grab and pull me to safety, to save me
Sanity, there is no sign of thee

Current and gravity pulling me down, I am lost and alone
In the dark depths, deep below I am so far from home
At the bottom far from all I come to rest
Now nothing can pull me out of this mess.
