Chasing Waterfalls

the-peace-of-a-tear-drop

My eyes are like waterfalls filled with savage emotion

The current is intense

The descent is deep and dreaded

The depths beneath so daunting

It’s dark and forlorn

Eaten up by the cold

Stinging me from within

Drowning in ache

And still the overflow is unending

I carry a weight upon me

It will never cease

I am moving from sorrow to sorrow

A heavy heart profuse with that, which plagues me

I am chasing waterfalls

I am that which I pursue

And yet I cannot escape from me
