I can't swim, I'm drowning in emotion.
Sadness and despair, deeper than the ocean.
Bearable when around those who don't condone,
deathly and overpowering when my mind is left alone.

My mouth filled up with water, I feel like a cancer,
I cannot ask for help, for i cannot face the answer.
The people telling me that I'm incredible, don't fret,
but they cannot understand my mind's my biggest threat.

For deep and alone in silence, it will wait in lay,
Until i'm just alone, until the end of the day.

And suddenly it pounces, opening its mouth.
I'd almost hoped my sadness was going through a drought.
Sadly, alas, no, for life is not that kind
and i am once more victim to the torture of my mind.
