Drowning in a Sea of Inquiry

I am drowning amidst a sea of inquiry.

What's catch me off guard,

disrupting my central balance.

Where's make my head resemble a carousel,

spinning round and round.

Why's fill my lungs with water heavy like cement,

fear taking complete precedence.

How's weigh down my ankles with steel chains,

down into the abyss.

Who's rest upon my chest like hundred pound weights,

releasing any remaining oxygen.

When's allow black spots to dance across my vision,

abandoning me to darkness.

Exhausted and defeated I comply.
