Grief Untitled 7

We sit in
Darkness
In chains
The boat creaks
The wood
Groans
Up
And
Down
Rising
Falling
Slowly
Pulling us
Away
From our
Life
Our life
Further
Further
Away
In darkness
Chains bind
Our wrists
Our ankles
Blood runs down
Water carries
Us West
Away
Away
Away
Rising
Falling
Rising
Falling
Salty tears
Ocean tears
Burn our
Skin in darkness
Why did we
Ever laugh
Such sorrow
Should have
Drowned
Laughter
Forever
For
All
Time
Creaking and groaning
This darkness
Rises
Falls
Pulled
Inexorably
Away
Life before
Life now
We know
No future
Life
Now
Consumes
Us
In darkness
