Float Or Drown

Into the sea,
Deeper and deeper just to see.
Hope is not enough,
The deeper one goes the more one wants to wake up.

So many crevasses to explore
Deep, deep into the sea of the forgotten.
This sea, does not have a shore,
Nowhere to go but deeper and deeper; no bottom.

Deeper and deeper,
The sea of melancholy is the only keeper,
Of the ghosts of the past,
Faceless vessels that never last.

Endless sea of melancholy;
The deeper one goes the less one knows; no glory.
What better way to forget than to stay floating
At the end, everyone drowns or end up coping;
Here in the sea of melancholy.
