Drowned In Sorrows

By Saanvi Shukla

Our souls are drowning,

My mind is dead,

Not knowing any way out,

While you are trying to find comfort in the water.

I only wish to step back into the light,

I’m getting used to being in the water.

Everyone warns you,

Don’t get used to something

you can’t let go off.

Foolish girl,

Not attempting to save yourself,

Getting used to the feeling of being in water.

Does it not fill your lungs?

Does it show you, it’s worth your trust?

The light of the world we live in,

Was too bight for me.

Then, i met someone, wo showed me darkness.

For a moment it felt like home,

For a second i felt safe.

You decided to trust death,

I decided that living was over all.

How wrong were we both?

Death was too violent, too unloved,

Life was too gentle, too loved.

I was in search of my home,

but will I ever find it?

i saw home in death,

so i stayed under the water,

as an effort to get closer to home.

it’s harmful to love the loathed,

it’s painful to love the cherished.

you are down in the wrong path,

and slowly they will imprison you in the darkest jail.

how futile it was,

i only sunk into a void of nothingness.
