Drown

by Elizabeth   Dec 14, 2008


Wave
after wave
I am beaten to the ground,
till I am swept into the current
callously--
spellbound.

Tumbling
through the rushing water,
gasping for air
I feel the pressure
mounting,
my lungs hardly able to bear.

Slowly
sinking,
I am pulled down,
another wave beats me
unconscious--
I drown.

    Good poem I gave it a 5/5... you honestly can view this in diffrent ways. Just like a lot of peoms you view it how you think you read it. This could be able life, love, just drowning, or whatever and I still love the poem. Keep up the good work and keep on writing
