Hitting the water.

Letting out a breath that was long overdue.
Instantly forgetting all the hurt inside of me.
Not caring to remember the things that I went through.
Shedding my past away,
Like a butterfly from its cocoon.

Leaving behind the memories,
I wish I never kept.
Floating there so freely,
Then sinking to the depths.

Darkness comes upon me,
Taking away my sight.
Leaving me in water,
Even blacker than the night.

Not worrying about what will happen.
Just loving how it feels.
The suspension and weightlessness,
A feeling so surreal.

No longer being scared
to let everything go.
Drifting to the bottom
Without a fear in tow.

Laying on the floor
With creatures that surround.
Finally feeling peace
Which could never before be found.

Ridding myself of the pain,

The frenzy inexorably drowns.

This piece was inspired by all of the emotions I had at the time, and in a way wanting to escape from them and put them to rest.
