Bitter (a poem)

Drowning in a whirlpool of betrayal


Please throw me a lifeline!

This shield so heavy; false portrayal

Treading harder

to no avail, the current stronger becomes

Pulling me through a vortex to its very pit

Oh despair!

What bitter irony you entreat

Oh despair!

Will this pain I e’er defeat?

A flood consumes me

Oceans swell with my tears

The tide recoils from my hate

Sea song

Tale of woe

Murky water, so deep

Oh deep, flowing water!

Wash away my hurt

Oh deep, flowing water!

My love to convert

I’m drowning in a whirlpool

Of betrayal

From which I find no escape


Please, throw me a lifeline

My perspective with time, reshape


Tell me whatcha think....
