LOST PRINCESS


Coming Up For Air.......... - Poem by LOST PRINCESS

held under water
for too long
the pressure getting higher
and higher
and higher
until i drown in the dark
im kept in the dark
for too long
the pressure getting harder
and harder
and harder
to handle in the dark
i cant take it anymore
i have to come up for air sometime
sometime or never
now or i drown in the dark
and not living to see the world
as it is
i want to come up for air
when i am with you i can breathe
and you pull me up for air
and i see the world as it is
and not how it should be
its just about that time that

im coming up for air.......

    Great poem! I love how the repetition of higher and harder makes it more intense, like i am the one who can't breathe. Really good! ! (Report)Reply
