Topic: anguished

Drowning in this ocean of endless pain
Trying to find my soul, so my heart can regain
The joy and grace it once had
So I can see that life isn/'/t so bad
Drowning in my restless thoughts,
Tossing and turning isn/'/t for what I/'/ve fought
My mind is being tortured at every thought of you
I/'/d love to see a grand sunset, that/'/d be quite a view
Drowning in the sensation of never again feeling your touch
Of never again being able to have your love
Trying and failing to get back on my feet
Let me tell you a story; grab a chair, take a seat
Drowning because I had nothing in mind
Drowning because I had nothing in sight
Drowning isn/'/t the way to go
Drowning isn/'/t the way to flow
Drowning is instant death to the brain
Drowning is gonna smear the stain
Drowning will leave an instant mark
Drowning is like that killer shark,
Lurking and circling for its prey
Until it hits it/'/s target it/'/s here to stay

Interesting it is that you use water as a basis for the poem. Even sharks...a fish.

Which remind me, there are other fish in the sea.

I felt as you do now (or did, I don/'/t know), and I can tell you that time is an incredible eraser. I thought I would melt into the earth in misery....I have trouble recalling her face now.

Keep it in mind....it wasn/'/t meant to be, but our of 3.5 plus females, I suspect she isn/'/t the ONLY one that will tickle your ivory.

He must be gone for quite some time. Keep swimming and you/'/ll reach shore. Lovely write.
