And As I Drown...

Storm forever churning
Over dark waters,
This violently thrashing
Sea of affliction,
In an instant,
Fatal waters calm,
Creating a tidal
Wave of emotions
Washing over me,
Pulling me under,
Peace of mind
And heart distant
Drowning on water,
Choking on words,
Just as my lungs
Finish filling with
Sea, salt, and regret,
I'm pulled out
Into a warm embrace
To continue living,
To continue loving
