Brainwashed–

slowly sinking
into the drain
of uncertainty–

I drag on…

Like drops
Of
Unsung
Melodies

Beating against the waves of confidence…

Past misfortune–pexels-photo-277670.jpeg

Present accident–

Future anxiety–

I plunge into hypervigilance…

Conceivably
I can dog-paddle
To the shore

My exhausted
Wailing
Shackles an anchor
I flail my arms
In combat
I sink
As I lose my hope
