the fight

I want to reach out
but there is no one there
that I trust enough
to burden with these thoughts
of darkness

I am drowning in myself
and there is no lifeboat
to save me

I am not sure if it's pride
or the lingering belief
that I am not worth saving
that keeps me from screaming out
for the life line I need

Today, I have forgotten how to swim
and all I can hope for
is the passing of this storm
before the darkness takes make under
and I lose the strength
to fight its depths
