Drowning

Running through the tunnel, afraid of my own shadow

I can’t breath  this place is dark and  so narrow.

I hear the river on the other side of the wall

she is whispering  and to me I hear her call.

She’s after me I know, if I trip she’ll catch me as I fall.

 

She is flowing , flowing  her powers growing, growing

Fingers rippling , rippling reaching out for me

Please don’t let her catch hold of me or I shall never again be free.

 

I hear her she is seeping through the walls

in my ears her voice, as my name she calls

My lungs hurt with heaving.  I am lost

I need to escape   but freedom comes at a cost.

 

Here she comes flowing fast around my feet,

I am exhausted now she has hold of me now I am beat.

Slowly now she is flowing up my body there is no point to fight

I give in, I give up she has won. I release you soul hurry take flight.

 

She is flowing , flowing  her powers growing growing

Fingers rippling , rippling reaching out for me

Please don’t let her catch hold of me or I shall never again be free.

    Very beautiful. A vivid description and one gets lost in the theme and actually feel as if the whole thing is happening for real. Thanks for sharing such a lovely post. I also like the rhythm which flows with ease. Take care.

    drowning, a very basic human fear, could be water, but covers all aspects of this life of ours,Sweet Willow, … your poem draws you in, and tosses you into the maelstrom, will we escape it’s clutches? I hope so, …. hugs to you my friend… xPenx
