The monster is drowning her.
Over and over it’s rakes her soul with its sharp claws.
She can’t come up for air.
Swallowing nothing, taking in black.
She wants to disappear but she can’t.
The weight of life is strapped to her and brings her down
farther and farther down into the abyss.
Her life vest is missing and she’s choking on the darkness
the monsters consumed her with.
She can’t keep up.
She can’t let go.
Kicking her feet she can’t reach the surface.
Let go, she silently screams.
But it’s pointless.
No one hears her cry.
The monster laughs as she drowns in her demons.
Deeper and deeper into the abyss.
Deep into the darkness.
