Take Me Over

*DISCLAIMER* This is in no way a reflection of how I’m feeling. The line “take me over” has been swirling around in my head for a few days, and I decided to dress it up with some poetry and publish it.

I’m slowly sinking
To depths unlit
Choking despair
Bottomless pit

Wholly unaware
I’ve been inverted
I think I’m climbing
Direction subverted

Led astray
I’ve gone asunder
A beast within
My soul to plunder

Lost in infinity
Unforgiving maze
I reach to you
Through wicked haze

Take me over
Take control
Emancipate
My captive soul

Lift me up
Take me home
Lead me from
This hell I roam

I need you now
Like never before
Reel me in
Pull me ashore

Infuse my strength
And I’ll stand unaided
A brand new man
Crisis abated

      Besides, the last thing I would do is push the responsibility for saving me on to someone else. That would be messed up. On a number of levels.

  3. I am glad you put up the disclaimer because this was very deep, almost tortured. Pulling words from a painful place, even if you aren’t presently there, is a testament to good writing.

  4. Well…
    you keep writing like you’ve done it your whole life
    Effortless
    Beautiful
    and whether you mean it right now or not you can’t write like this without ever having felt it..

  8. Thank you for that disclaimer. I was going to have to show up at your door if you hadn’t clarified that. I do know that things continue to be difficult for you and for that I am sorry. I like this poem. All of us at some point think about how nice it would be to give up total control to another person to lead us, take over our every movement, make decisions for us and tell us how to feel – if for at least an hour or two. More than that and we would start wanting our freedom back.
