Drowning


Devastation

Drop by drop
each unshed tear collects within
A deep pool reflecting sorrows
accumulated day after day

Always a period of calm
the well of emotions unruffled
preceding the storm
waiting to be unleashed

It breaks and builds
whipping up the still waters
into a whirlpool of despair

Impending devastation
threatens to overwhelm
One day, I know,
I will drown in myself
