A Psalm pt. 1

I battle alone in the darkness

Fighting and clawing at this beast

But weakness brings me to my knees

I have lost the battle and my soul it rattles

I took the bait. The very, very thing I hate

The outcome is known, it's brutality shown

Death itself reigns in moments like these

Won't you save me from these dark seas?

I can't swim...


I'm thinking of my sinking

Of the way the air disappears

Of the way despair has become my oxygen

Inhale....I'm drowning...I'm drowning

My lungs inflate filled with hopelessness

I'm drowning, won't you save me from these dark seas?

The waves, they cave

The light is looking pretty thin now.
