Rock Bottom

On my belly I crawled,
Dragging my languid extremities 
Along the mud-caked floor,
Eyes dull and listless.
I caught my reflection
In a puddle of putrid water,
A blurry image soaking up the light 
Between the grime and scum.

And it was there,
That stagnant place for so long I slithered 
Hoping to run into you, 
That the world hurled me into myself.

Oh I like this. Vivid depiction of a grim wasteland and one who travels through it. The unexpected reflection is brilliant.

Really horrid, as meant to be. Agree with Vautaw about the imagery and message.
