Drowning In Sorrow


JUST ONCE, PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND
WHY DARKNESS HAUNTS MY DREAMS.
VAGUE REALIZATION’S NOT ENOUGH,
AND LOVE IS NEVER WHAT IT SEEMS.
TRYING HARD TO GRASP REALITY,
THE MORNING ALWAYS COMES,
WHEN IN THE LIGHT I REALIZE THAT, THE
TOTAL IS NEVER EQUAL TO THE SUMS
AND THE THINGS I TAKE FOR GRANTED,
BY WHICH I MUST ABIDE,
COME CRASHING DOWN AROUND ME,
TO ABRUPTLY END MY RIDE.
AND LAYING NAKED TO THE WORLD,
STILL TRYING HARD TO GRIN,
I FEEL THE LOSS OF INNOCENSE.
MY SOUL FILLS UP WITH SIN.
YET THE LIFEGUARD ONLY WATCHES
AS THE THIRD TIME I GO DOWN
BUT HE NEVER LIFTS A FINGER
HE JUST SITS THERE WHILE I DROWN.
WELL I GAZED INTO YOUR SOUL
NEVER NOTICING THE LIE,
AND AS THE WATER FILLS MY LUNGS,
MY ONLY THOUGHT IS, “WHY?”

KB you're a poet, but do you know it?

Idk what to say, my good friend SSR.
Methinks that you write better by far 😏
