It is a sea that you struggle in
but the more you fight the more it takes you over
Waves pound over your head
You splash and fight and break the surface
To be hit by a undercurrent
Everytime you reach the surface
You are swiped away
The waves of sadness toy with you tossing you, turing you
Throwing you around
It hits you that to stop the fight would be easy
And maybe you could just tremd
You let yourself go
The waves take over
Pounding you
You are swept under
Your breath taken away
You are dragged slowly to the bottom of the sea
Dreaming of the surface
You feel the coldness
Its fingers groping
You sink so slowly
Does pressure have to do with it?
You hit the bottom
Lungs exploding
The pressure increases
You start to fade
In the sea of sadness

i really dig how the poem progressively shortens word count... it seems to rush you along, reeling in the sensation of the waves you're talking about... read some of mine?
