Hit bottom
Cry your eyes out
The feeling of falling
Falling, falling
Nothing there
No support
Until it stops
Yet its still dark
Step out
Slip again
Only to find that
There is no bottom
This time
But the fall is cooling
But for some reason it’s
Continue sinking
Takes a few minutes
To realize you’re not
Drowning, but
Start swimming instead
No sign of the surface
Keep swimming deeper
And deeper
Into the unknown
It hurts to look up
So keep looking down,
In front
Maybe this is all
Just a dream
But pinching
Makes it seem a reality
You must realize
Just fall asleep
Only to wake up to
Another nightmare
That could be a dream
