The Deal

I don’t know why I keep this up

It’s only for myself

Nobody cares for me

And I care for no one else

My personal hell, laid out on the page

People take a glance, then carry on their way

So many days

So many years I’ve invested

Always in the red

One sided transactions

After Sinking

If consistency is key, I might be nearing my escape

Small box where I languish

Spend all of my days

Wave after wave of letters

Cresting, endless rhythm

Washing over me as chains assure of my position

Ocean floor

Running out of breath

Breaking out is the beginning

Next comes the ascent
