Poetry: The Sea of Tears

The Sea of Tears by Emily Thrasher

Drowning in a sea of tears
Trying to escape from all my fears
The worry that haunts my dreams
Making my feelings go to extremes

We can’t fight what pulls us down
Rapid riptide water threatens to drown
Whipping around a whirlpool of waves
The flood we’re in makes us slaves

Master of misery is where my soul rests
Tremendous amounts of time before this ingests
Negligible negotiations would leave us drowning
Despite my desperation and endless frowning

Floating and splashing, along for the ride
I will do down in this terrible tide  
Until my last breath I will fight the undertow
If I drown, only then will I let you go
