I’m drowning
Gasping for air
Swimming in pain
Punishing myself
For the words I never said
And the ones that I did
For the actions I took
And those I did not

Chastising myself
For the pain I’ve caused
For hurting those I love most
Living with my heart on my sleeve
Sappy motherfucker that I am

Will I ever learn to forgive myself?
When will my reflections give me strength?
When will facing my demons let me grow
Rather than constantly regress
Into “the sunken place”?
