My Thoughts Are Drowning Me


Sometimes I feel like the waves in the ocean; 

calm and violent

strong and deadly


My mind is a tsunami

thoughts, ideas, revelations

i cannot fathom 


The barrier is broken and the 

water isrushing in I can't seem 

to breathe, I'm drowning from within


I'm deadly enough to pull you 

into my undertow, i'm deadly

enough to let you go


The water collapses against the sand

begging "Look at me! Can't you see?

I'm floating away" 


Sometimes I feel like the waves in the ocean;

a torrent and a whisper

silent and crazy
