Grief : Part 2

My emotions 

Are an ocean 

Vast And endless 

I am insignificant 

In this expanse,

I am treading pain 

The way one treads water.

At this rate 

I fear I will quickly tire 

My tolerance will expire.

I am desperate for land 

Sweet solid stability 

My meaningful relationships 

Are an island 

They provide a highland 

I can swim too 

And hold 

As if my life depends upon it 

Because it does 

And when I’ve escalated so high 

There is no logic, 

I can’t even move !

I am frozen as if weighed down ,

This sadness is heavy 

And steals my breath :

There is life 

And there is death.
