Poem-Just below

You lay awake at night

Trying to picture your life

The way it was

Supposed to be

Image is still not clear

The sound of broken promises

Is all you can hear

You squeeze your eyes tight

Roll over in bed

There are more questions

Than answers swirling around

In your head


You look painfully at the clock

Another day is coming

The thought of this

And knowing what it brings

Washes over you

Overwhelming sense of dread


Your chest feels like

It is full with water

You concentrate on it

Until you feel like you are floating

Just below the surface

Or is it that you are drowning
