Breathe In

--Breathe Out
Breathe In

--Breathe Out
Get to the surface

Stay afloat
Don’t let your head go under.
Clear your mind,
Don’t panic

--Yeah right.
Word after Word
Passes me by
More and More spring up,
-some unknown to even myself.
I sink down,
--everything goes dark.
My airway starts to close.
I scream for help.

--no sound comes out.
No one there

No one to help.

Push me under

Grab my throat,
Steal all my air.
Eating my alive,

Those savage beasts,
--Drowning in my lies.--

The author's comments:
This poem is about me and my lies. It is telling how they came back to haunt me, bite me in the butt. It also is not limited to lies, but also just things I've said about people and gossip. The things I've said have always come back around to me, and no matter how hard I tried, there was no way escaping it. I hope people can relate to this poem, and I think that many of us can. Everyone has said something that they regret, and that's really what I was getting at here.
