Moments of Despair (Poetry)

Too tired to move

Too awake to sleep

Diving in emotions

Dark and deep

Swimming back up

To feel the air

To breathe in love

And breathe out despair


Swirling in rapids

Unable to find

The surface above

As chaos circles my mind

Drowning, while reaching

For a hand to take hold

To pull me up out

Of this darkness below


Faith, I have faith

And drowning I see

Is only in my mind

Like the depths of this sea


When I centre myself

It’s clear in my mind

That my body is safe

That the despair is inside


Hanging my head

In heartache and pain

Wishing I weren’t

So fucking insane


Take a deep breath

And let be what will be

Let the thoughts pass

Continue to breathe
