drowning

It's like drowning.

I've never felt

water filling my lungs,

but I have experienced 

sorrow crushing my ribcage

breaking my soul

suffocating me

no matter where I go

no matter where I turn

It engulfs me

I cannot escape it

I cannot breathe 

Raging wars on myself

Precariously 

Running from an entity

but as I look back

Nullity

My demons are chasing me

terrorizing me

drowning me

Or 

Are they inside me?

This poem is about: 
Me
