In spite of myself no2

I struggle upward
Fighting against
The desire
To sink
To let go
To do nothing
Head arched back
Mouth agape
I suck in the muck
Of my mind
That which has
Anchored me
To this mire
I choke on its toxicity
Spit out my confusion
And angst
For too long
It’s blinded me
Into inaction
My lungs
Crushed against atmospheres
Of fear
Struggle
My tremulous heart
Erratically beats
“I will endue” grinds away
In my mind
Forcing my body
To live…
Though time has no meaning
It passes anyway
Eventually I land
A gasping flailing fish
Out of water
Eyes open
And ready to survive.
