Poetry On Odyssey: When You Try To Keep Your Head Above Water

The first poetry piece I've written in years.

head above

i'm drowning oh i'm drowning

the room i'm in is closing in and i feel myself

gasping for air. the people slowly disappear

until i'm all alone. trying to show you that i

can be what you need.

bouncing in and out of my life, i will let you do

it no more. i am not a toy for you to chase like

that anymore. i'm a prize that's worth

earning. and it's concerning your lack of

caring. so i keep my head above water just in

case you want me.
