Abyss

In a room full of people, I am utterly alone
The darkness falls over me
Like waves crashing down
I cannot reach the sand beneath me

A light at the end of the tunnel
Their laughter
Brings my head above water
The only thing keeping me afloat

The darkness comes in phases
I don’t want to get up
The world around me continues
Flying passed me

I am alone
Inside my mind, the waves return
Crashing over me, one by one
Anyone… save me

Their smiles bring me back
Back to life
Return me from abyss
Until the waves return
