dead before I died


Deep Of The Water - Poem by dead before I died

Down in the water
by the edge of the river
where time stands still,
.....if only forever.

Down in the water
by the edge of the river
where I buried all
that was ever childhood

Where I let it go,
where it bends and meanders,
twisting along as the years went past.
Seemingly calm, but beneath the surface
its hidden whirlpools, a sweeping current!

Down in the water,
I left the edge of the river,
as I looked down
for my soul at the bottom.

Deep in the water!
swept away by the river! ,

I drowned in life,

......sinking forever.
