Whirlpool

At what point
did my marriage
Turn into the
whirlpool
That threatens to
pull me under?

Canít you see
that Iím in over my head?
Iíve been sucked in
And I canít get out.

Iím drowning.
Going under for the third time
Wonít someone save me?

They say if you stop struggling
Itís the best way to die.
Just give in to the complacency
That they call life.
thatís all I have to do
to find the answer Iím searching for.
Give in
Give up.
So I do
And I welcome death.
Only she can bring me Peace.

This was written during some dark times. It amazes me how far I've come in the past year.

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Beyond the darken stars lays daylight.

Well done Tara

Me too!
This is filled with such palpable despair that I wanted to find the nearest bridge!

Thanks, Christopher! That's the kind of despair and hopelessness that I wanted to get across.

If I hadn't experienced this agony myself firsthand, I would still understand the pain just by reading this! Very well done, Tara.
