Here is where I float,

I am drifting in water,

For here I sit in a boat;

This all started with adventure.


As of now, I dream of returning home.

I wish to be in my room,

In my bed and all alone,

Listening to a favorite tune.


Once again, I float in this deep end,

Alone and afraid;

I fear I'll sink and descend

Into the ocean's dark blue shade.


The fears I hold, they crash onto me,

Waves of unfelt feelings flood my mind

As I lower into the depths unhappy,

Becoming impossible to find.

The author's comments:

This piece is an emotional piece I wrote about how overwhelming feelings can consume you, making you feel as though you are drowning. This is a feeling many feel, as they are overwhelmed with schoolwork or with things going on in their life. It is so easy to feel as though you are sinking down deep. This I wrote for the poetry contest on this site.
