Drowning in Questions

Drowning in a sea of damnation.

Trying to keep my head above the waves of what ifs,

Choking on the if onlys.

Wanting to know was it me who was not enough

Or was it you who did not care enough?

How do I survive this endless circle of blame,

Step away from what cannot be changed?

How do I walk away

When hope still lingers we can survive?

How do I let go and once again become
