Sinking


Sinking further into depression,
Can't keep my head above this ocean,
I just can't fight its downwards pull,
Feeling weights tied to my feet,
The more I fight the further I go,
But I just can't fight the current,
Can't float above the surface anymore,
I'm drowning in its darkness,
Continually sinking,
Not far from the bottom now,
Then I'm gone,
Lost to this sea of never ending depression

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
