Eyes seeking the light

only finding darkness.

Finally breaching the surface

only to be pulled down once more.

Weighed down by an iron heart.

Lungs burning for air

only to be encased in ice.

Finally breaching the water

only to be pushed down once more..

Poisoned by a crown of thorns.

Author’s Note:

As I complete this one I feel something is missing. I started with such high emotions, took a step away, and when I came back the emotions had dulled. Now I’m sitting here feeling so unfulfilled.

I could scrap it. Start anew. Maybe someday I will.

Not today though. I’m too tired.
