Drowning

It's funny how when we were younger
we were afraid of things like
thunderstorms,
disappointment
and drowning.
But now we live for the rain,
and the shaking of a storm
and the only person I disappoint is myself,
because I've pushed everyone away, and I wonder if it's because I am no longer scared of these small things, but have become my own fears.
My tears are the rain,
my mistakes are the disappointment and I am drowning in every breath I breathe.
So now,
all I can do is hide myself
and be alone in the darkness
of my mind.
