I feel like I’m drowning,

Suffocating under waves that never relent.

When I finally get my head above the water its only for a few moments

before another waves comes

and once again I'm dragged down under.

Over and over again, the cycle never seems to end.

I'm wavering in strength.

I want someone to save me but I fear

that they won't be enough to save me from myself.
