a strange dream

“person's hands” by Blake Cheek on Unsplash

I’m drowning
in cold water
surrounded by dead bodies
barely floating around me

.

I’m drowning 
in ocean water
no land in sight
just a boat
pushing away
abandoning me, while i
abandon hope

.

and how did i
end up here?
oh yes,
cast out
left, pushed over

.

for lack of a heart
a soul
a place
a god?

.

left to drown
or freeze
however this nightmare
will decide to end

.

no use swimming
pointless
nowhere to go
just tread water
and wait

.

for the impending
doom
that awaits
patiently
for us all

.
