Underwater

I travelled the world
tasting poison
becoming bitter
with every sip
my golden aura
turning a little black
but I knew there was
no turning back
once I had
my feet in water
I knew soon
I would drown
my lungs would fight
for every breath
and I kept cursing
my courage of
drinking myself
into oblivion
I kept feeling
a 'sinking feeling'
like a dagger in my chest
calling it just a 'dart'
I confess feeling shallow
after every stab of regret
I confess crying every night
over lost nostalgia.
It still haunts
me in my dreams
I found a mirror
underwater but I
couldn't recognize myself.
