I Reach for a Rock


I Reach for a Rock - drawing by Harvey Dog 2020

I reach for a rock
to keep
from drowning
amongst the crashing
waves

I fall into
the
murky depths,
swallowing my
poison
I sink lower and
lower…

the sun fades
a distant past
a distant life

future’s degenerate
nature
the decadence
I craved…
in my mind,
has become
reality


Notes

  • A poem about sinking down down down into the “murky depths” of depression & seeking a way out of this seeming inevitability.

Written: 1997
