The Riptide

A wave of emotion swept over me. Caught in the riptide I tumbled and turned, tossed helpless as the surge consumed me, my soul grasping for air as I sank beneath the surface, unsure which way was up.

I did not know whether to give up or fight - to go slack and welcome the wave's embrace or to struggle and try to find surface.

Still fighting I drowned in the emotion, unable to breathe, pain filling by being. The bitter taste at my lips, I welcomed the oncoming unconscious, drowned in my sorrows, drowned in my pain.

Unfortunately it reminds me of some of my sleepless nights.
