Treasure Island

Daniel Wittfoth

(January 8th,1966)

Sinking Deeper


Just don't leave me here alone
sinking deeper into this sadness
drowning in this sorrow
wave after wave-of misery

Going down-for the last time
sinking deeper into this sadness
deeper than this heart can take
wave after wave-of misery

Take me gently in your arms
hold me safe-away from harm
Keep this heart from breaking
whisper softly
tell me-I will be alright

'montional storm rising up
moments now-tattered and torn
trying hard-keep control
Feeling empty
the coldness-is unwanted here

Just don't leave me here alone
sinking deeper into this sadness
drowning in this sorrow
wave after wave-of misery

Going down-for the last time
sinking deeper into this sadness
deeper than this heart can take
wave after wave-of misery

Fall apart
from inside-out
Let me know
wasn't in vain
how do I tell-reason
To be assured
that given-wasn't total waste

Just don't leave me here alone
sinking deeper into this sadness
drowning in this sorrow
wave after wave-of misery

Going down-for the last time
sinking deeper into this sadness
deeper than this heart can take
wave after wave-of misery...

    Your poem is so true...We think that what was bothering us would end real soon then if it does or if it doesn't we just have some other misery to occupy our thoughts. I liked this poem. I'll add it to one of my favorites. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
