I can't understand/
the seas are rushing, the waves overcoming me/
struck, trapped, held/
the watchful eyes has turned/
the light and beacon I was looking to is gone/
my body frail, painted with colors dark as night/
weak, helpless/
crawling towards what I can't see/
holding this torch that'll never be lit/
no thoughts/ caught in webs/
being eaten slowly by my captor/
calling out, where is my savior, where is my light/
screaming, groaning, moaning/
an empty hall is all that receives me/
nothing to stop the dragging, no one to calm the seas

Tons of content there, almost every break can be expanded upon to a full poem on its own.

It made me feel confusion and anxiety , good write.

Your write is so familiar - like when awakened from a claustrophobic nightmare, excellent imagery

Futility in each worded phrase. I can feel the isolation clear over here.

It was just a thought which made them run. It was just an act that killed them.

So darkly reflective. Brings all the lost lonely moments to the surface of your memories.
