Chaotic waters

I’m engulfed
in a chilling facade
Tightness in chest
and burning veins;
A deceitful warmth doth flow

Icy claws of
the dark deep
brought me hither
to pull me apart;
Secrets of the dead
they whisper

My sanity
slowly withers
Hands now impatient
to grab remnants
of a decaying soul

Phantasmal waves
of anxiety
caress the lines
of my palm
to gingerly untangle
and leave them
to fade away

Two bubbles
of sweet hope
rising to the surface,
leave me behind
as I drown in thoughts;
To breathe
is to surrender

Inside me,
two people
pulling the strings;
Breathe in death
or breathe out life

A rendezvous of
gazillion sensations
inside
A cluster of bubbles
outside
as I slowly embrace
the endless gray...

    Wow. Beautifully described, debilitating anxiety. Personal experience, or imagination, it makes me wonder? But no need to answer. :)) I myself have a couple of times felt something akin to what you’ve written in these stanzas, that’s why I ask. Either way, chillingly lovely poem. πŸ’›πŸŒ»

  3. Guten Tag.

    Wunderbare Worte:

    Wer wagt es so wie Sie
    im wirklichen Leben
    in das Land
    der Toten
    zu steigen
    obwohl alle
    Vorfahren
    in unserer Seele
    ihre Wohnstatt
    haben?

    Die Umarmung
    gilt auch den
    unerlΓΆsten Seelen
    damit man
    das Geschenk
    des Lebens feiern
    sich an ihm
    erfreuen darf
    und kann

    Herzliche Grüße

    Good day.

    Wonderful words:

    Who dares like you
    in real life
    into the country
    the dead
    to rise
    though all
    ancestors
    in our soul
    their abode
    to have?

    The hug
    also applies to
    unredeemed souls
    so that one
    the gift
    celebrate of life
    to him
    can enjoy
    and can

    Best regards
    Hans Gamma
