Drowning into a dark sea,

Under a dark sky


No one's gonna save me,

No one’s gonna try


Still I feel so betrayed 

Broken from inside


Angry with myself 

As the water becomes quite



Is this heaven?

This endless vanity


So is this sanity?

This cold cruelty


I want to cry louder,

But wimp in silence



The harshness of the wind

Is just to keep this ignorance


Trying to understand,

Is this dirt, I've in me


Trying to ignore

Maybe it’s the way I see 


This is reality?

This fetishized inhumanity


So this is sanity?

Just a mindless morality


Not understanding

Why it’s so hard to understand



No emotion on any face.

No place to stand


I'm the one to blame for trying to pretend

Not knowing what I want and what I intend

I don't know what I want, can't want what I do

More I try to run, more I sink into the blue



Am I wise now?

A renamed taint


Am I now a saint?

So there’s no escape


I know what to do,

There is no reason to try



In this cold darkness,

We’re swimming in a lie


Unable to see over the surface, anything beyond the next

Unable to find a purpose, I am still lost in myself

Great poem, I felt like it really had a lot of depth to it and the emotions that came through it were so strong. All the allusions to water really added a lot to it too.

The dark tone of this poem is spot on. I love the lines the depict how the speaker second-guesses themselves. It truly shows how lost in their thoughts or existence they are. Great job!
