Head Above Water
Pain. Agony. Torment.
Insults burden me, further pulling me under
The words tore through my head
Their voices were loud and clear
It was a siren beckoning me to my death
The pain. Make it stop!
Ugly. Stupid. Worthless.
Can someone help me? Just one, please?
Someone, save me from the waves crashing above my head
I'm grasping for a hand to keep me alive but can't find anything
I'm not worth saving; a useless piece of trash
Miles past saving
I scream. I plead. I cry.
Someone, please, drag me out of the deep
Can't you see my internal struggle?
I want to give up and let the water consume me
My will is diminishing, the darkness is comforting
I want to let go but then, something pulled me up
A glimpse of the sky after years of darkness
