Drowning - Poem by Angela McCrimmon

I'm sinking deep and I'm sinking fast,
I'm doing my best to swim,
This breath I take could be my last,
I'm losing the strength within.
I'm trying to scream but you don't hear,
Why do you not hear my voice,
You're leaving me with the thing that I fear,
Myself....and I don't have a choice.
I've asked for help and don't understand,
What do you want me to do,
Are you aware that I have made a plan,
I'm terrified I follow it through!
I feel like I'm going over the edge,
There is no soft place to fall,
I'm balancing here on a window ledge,
While you are just watching it all.
Is it just me or is this so unfair,
It feels like I'm the only one,
The only person who seems to care,
That my life isn't over and done.
I know I'm doing the best I can,
Is it enough? I really don't know,
It's like you won't acknowledge I am,
Dying.....and I'm dying slow.
