Violent Submersion

violent submersion

eyes wide and arms outstretched

in the midst of thrashing and trying to catch your breath

a clear vision

an agonizing realization

you played a part

and refused to see this is how it would end

it happened slowly and played itself out

as you looked away

and here you are

taking your last breath

do you choose to fade away

or to fight for a life half lived

  1. Thanks! I was commenting on what is currently going on in society, and how we choose to look away and pretend nothing is happening. I never share my writing, because I’m a perfectionist, so this is a nice opportunity for me.
