DROWNINGA Poem by Cassie Fraga
My thoughts have the ability to steal me...
I watch the gleam in its eyes lock inside mine
Everything I feel is everything it hides
Dropped into a pool of murky water
Struggles to stay afloat
Was it pushed?
Did it jump?
Splashes hit my skin with a burn
The water boils
I tread a circular motion on the outside
Feeling the scorching temperature rise
My emotions can’t seem to rationalize
Is this a do or die?
Arms reach to save
I can’t handle the sound of sting
Cover my ears in shivers of dreams
Hushing the suffrage of its chokings
My eyes focus in on the battle
Leaking passion to crash into the water like cannons
The destruction takes it under
My screams come with flashes of lightning
Trying to tear through the in between
I drop to my knees
My crying echo carries against the nightmare scene
One thousand by one thousand times
I hear my soul sing with a dying whine
My heart begins to pulse rapidly out of rhyme
From the sky thorns begin to bleed
Seeping into my skin like dragons teeth
Slicing uncontrolled throughout my being
And the wind blows of something deeper than a storm
My minds impression worn
STAY WITH ME!!!
My tortured plea causes the ground to shake
Begging for its love to stay awake
I extend my trembling hand for it to take
I whisper as the war becomes exhausting
Silent ripples conclude the splashes fighting
Its sweet hand doesn’t reach
The face of your name-
