Falling Apart

Falling Apart

Strands of hair fall–
Signifying the world
That crumbles.
Ground shakes,
Is that in me, or outside?

Throat closed–
Strangled by cries
That never leave my lungs.

Eyes burn red–
With tears
That will never know
The outside world.

Aching sobs
Fill the cavity
Of my emptiness,
Yet still no sound emits.

Spiral,
Spiral,
Spiral.
Down,
Down,
Down.
Fall,
Fall,
Fall.
Still no sound emits?

Darkness–
Snatches light.
Currents pull me deeper.
Deeper,
Deeper.

Never was a strong swimmer–
So what happens next?
