he's drowning in a sea of guilt
the waves of shame topple over him

he catches his breath, then loses it again
as the currents of fear threaten to kill him

that blue, peaceful looking ocean
that one, innocent looking lie

he knows now that they are more dangerous than they seem
learned that the hard way, he

swim and try to ignore
the hopelessness swimming circles around him

he focuses on the shore
hoping it will bring him peace

but finally the waves catch him and he begins to submerge
so he let out his last fateful cry

if anyone at all had heard him, no one came,
as he cried out his last "help"
