I am drowning
in my ocean of pain.
Doubt wraps its arms around me
seductively
and I begin to sink.
I embrace my death-
Doubt-
even as I scream,
terrified of the lies
that entice me deeper
into a world of agony.

Everything moves so slowly-
I can count the bubbles of air
as they force themselves
from my mouth,
following each other
to the surface.
Vaguely it occurs to me
that I ought to follow them,
that I need to be at the surface.
The surface is life,
I think, struggling
even to hold that thought,
but the idea is elusive,
and Doubt is whispering in my ear...

Distracted,
I sink deeper and deeper,
as I get weaker and weaker...

Doubt is calling me...

I follow my lover eagerly...

Hey Kielo,

I was going to go for a midnight swim, but I think Iíll wait now till morning now...lol


It is hard not to go under with the heavy weight of doubt on your shoulders pulling you down...

But the good thing about doubt is that it doesnít have to be absolute...

By itís sheer definition, whatever it is you are suspicious and uncertain about. May in fact, be something you can depend on, and even have faith in...

Do me a favor my friend, and try following those bubbles...

It will at least give you more time, to sort things out...


Meanwhile... I think Iíll skip my bath tonight to...

lol

^^ Your style is far different that mine, just as the subjects we write about are. But I do like a lot of your poems, there's something about them...
