Sinking faster and faster into the dark abyss of depression.
The faint echoes of my parent’s voices chained to each limb, pulling me in deeper.
Every insecure thought I’ve thought and every hurtful word muttered by my peers swim around me like a school of fish, circling in around my body.
Every swift move they make leaves a trail of whispers.
The eels send shocks of doubt through my body, reminding me of my failures.
I’m just a lifeless figure drifting down further, my lungs filling up with the salty water reminiscent to the taste of my tears.
The hope oozes out of me and I hiccup in my last attempt to catch my breath until my body goes limp and I’m left to be fish food.
