I'm Drowning


I'm not waving from my balconey
Where I see all but none see me
No, i'm drowning in a sea of bitter tears
My arms are held high trying to keep me above
it's not working
I go under, I cannot breathe
But somehow I am more at peace
I have stopped moving, stopped trying to fight
I take a deep breath, I know it will be my last
The darkness comes, grabs hold of me
I struggle for a moment but know it will not let go
I give in
At last I see him again, the one who saw me
The darkness is beautiful, calming
I'm not waving. No. I'm drowning

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
