The Sea


I sink in it, overwhelmed
You simply watch me plummet down

With no air to sustain
Only a sea of thrashing pain

You stand to leave and,
softly whisper; "breathe in"

& force open my mouth,
To swallow a sea of doubt

I do what you expect of me
though it'll be the death of me

I take my place amongst the tide
Inhaling all waves provide

Though my lungs burn to breathe
They've learned more, to yearn the sea

Since you know what's best for me,
Take it all
what's left of me

For those, even my closest ones, who don't understand my struggle..
