Drown

Sleeping deeply, always lightly
Never sweetly but always nightly.
Nightmares haunt me taunting softly
Leaking deeply into my reality.
Was it a dream or was it real?
These wicked thoughts are out to drown me,
They are as broad as the earth’s seven seas.
With haunting dreams of past memories
I tried to lock them away and throw away the keys,
But I found out how to beat them to it,
Opened the bottle and drank right through it.
Wicked thoughts about the past are finally silent,
Silent at last.

that gave me chills.
that was very deep and a little sweat,
i guess you can say it was somewhat unique.
I couldn’t have came up with that when i'm at the peak of what I think.
the way your words was so complexly intertwined,
i can honestly say that you blew my mind,
the very concept of drowning in your memory,
reminds me of me back when didn't have a hold of things .
im glad that you have found the solution,
now hold on to it and it will become even truer.
thank you for your words of wisdom. :)
