My Life At Sea

i can feel the darkness seeping under my skin,

the silence a deafening thunder in my ears.

i can feel the cold water chilling my bones,

these things in  my head throw me overboard.

with a heart this heavy,

like a three-ton anchor in my chest.

how do i use the stars to guide me,

when their light to me no longer exists?

how do i keep afloat this life that i no  longer want to live,

with the ghosts of shipwrecks,

try to drag me down?

i guess i'll keep swimming,

just keep on living,

bobbing on the waves,

takking it day by day in this open sea,

deep blue sea,

and hope i drift across some big fish in some small way.

The End
