Drowning in guilt

Ocean of Defeat

Back at the begining
Choking- still swimming
Thought I reached sandy shore
Thought I was done playing the whore
When did the water get so deep
How did I turn out to be the creep
I paddle through chaos and agony
With the brutal waves crashing in back of me
Water pours down and invades my lungs
I had a dream I was sentenced to be hung
My family waved goodbye
But they never ever seen me cry
That son-of-a-bitch stole my integrity
Now hell's gates open and beg for me

This ocean bleeds torment and hate
It washes away what we thought was fate
Fate took a dive and killed your only friend
Now you stand at the edge and scream for the end

I was walking on needles with no shoes on my feet
They claim the war is over but i've yet seen defeat
I don't believe when they say i've had enough
Freedom's around the corner when they take off the cuffs
But this ball and chain is still holding me back
I'm asking for peace, I don't want to attack
I found a rock heavier than my pain
I tied it to my ankle and fell with the rain
I hit the water with no air in my chest
For this is the way you could love me best
The point of murdering all that is real
Is to fight off the demons who cause us to feel

Now I'm swimming through hell with no one to love
But I can still feel your tears as they fall from above

This ocean bleeds torment and hate
It washes away what we thought was fate
Fate took a dive and killed your only friend
Now you stand at the edge and scream for the end

  Wow, the whole imagery of the waves is uber-cool. One comment i had was that the beginning of the second to last stanza's imagery seems uniquely out of sink with the rest of the poem. I noticed all phrases stop at the end of you lines, making the flow rather monotonous. Try playing around with enjambements a little now and then. It's a story yet there seems to be a part missing when you jump from a ball and chain holding you back and the rock u use to help drown yourself. Honestly, though all in all, it's really nice poetry. Peace. Oh how cd i forget i absolutely loved "Now Hell's gate's open and beg for me."

  its a good piece,theres alot of really good imagery in it.the picture it painted seemed...almost dali-esque.there was good flow thorughout,which is an amazing feat in itself since there were several ideas in this poem (at least,it seemed like there were,to me) overall,bravo,a job well done.
