The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 30, 2022

It’s Saturday again , yesterday we received our prompt for SoCs from LindaGHill she said : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wash/awash.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Bonus points for using both. Enjoy!

Awash, I am awash, scared of drowning, please throw me a line.
Feelings of fear and insecurity wash over me and I am sinking. I am caught in a whirlpool of hurt. I am afraid of my own shadow.
I see dismissal in every look a snub here a blank there.
I feel darkness creeping back washing over me I am awash with hopelessness.

    I hope this isn’t true. Either way tossing you a life line if you need a mate to talk to, have a laugh with, cry with, or just generally be batshit bonkers with xx

    Such a well written sad heartfelt poem, Hoping it’s a work of fiction.
