Beneath the Waterfall

Soaked to the bone

   Feeling pressure 

   Crumbling beneath

   Self perceived

   Slights and sorrow.

   Every movement

   Burdened, weighted

   Exhaustion settling

   Into every crevice.

Resting, eyes closed

   As doubts come to

   Play jump rope upon

   temples, stringing out

   Anxieties with glee.

   Building a wall

   Of numbness inside

   Trying to block the 

   Jarring sensation.

Moments of clarity

   Feeling strong

   Knowing that it 

   Could pass soon

   Throwing self into

   Life, pulling every

   Second of joy 

   Possible out until

   Drowning begins anew.
