Thoughts like murky waters

Turbulent whirlpools

Of desperation and sorrow

Drowning reason


Muffled voices offer platitudes

Kindness intended

Deafening self-talk

Mocks words of hope


Shadows wrap around

Canopy of dense fog

Seeps into my lungs

Suffocating breath


Tears flood my face

A waterfall over rocks

Cascading, thundering

Releasing emotions
