Drowning In My Tears

entry picture

Your smile was a thing of absolute joy 
You loved me with a fiery passion
Like two peas in a pod we thrived
Our hearts were entwined in a beautiful fashion
Each and every special day with you
Was a gift to be truly treasured
Now I have a hole in my heart
An emptiness that cannot be measured

Waves of emotion engulf me
I am swimming against the tide
At the mercy of the stormy seas 
There is nowhere left for me to hide
The time has come to face my fears
I am drowning in my tears
My life is just an illusion it appears 
I am drowning in my tears

Another groundhog day greets me
Going through the motions once again
A clowns painted smile I wear
I carry on regardless and hide my pain
For me the sun refuses to shine
Grief clouds my body and soul 
The future holds no joy for me
I am rapidly losing control

No point sending out an SOS
I am beyond help and sinking 
No mayday is needed for me
No rescue party required I'm thinking 
The time has come to face my fears
I am drowning in my tears
My life is just an illusion it appears
I am drowning in my tears
I am drowning drowning drowning in my tears

Tom, this piece is so precise and acutely sorrowful. It is powerful in an analytical sense of self-perception and preservation.
Excellent piece, thank you for sharing.
