Cold Water

Sonorous Hiraeth

I feel as if I am drowning beneath

The waves of stress and responsibility

They place upon my head a hefty wreath

Of expectations beyond my ability

I swim up and up, striving for the best

Not realizing that few saw my efforts

Hoping that they would at least seem impressed

But all they’re ever say is “be better”

My mouth opens to scream “enough!”

My heart yearns to deliver my true feelings

In the pattern of mosaic tiles

Before I find myself on the ground, kneeling

I don’t need forgiveness for my mistakes

I need someone to save me before I break
