There’s this empty feeling that I can’t shake off.
I feel like I am drifting in the rapids filled with skeletons.
It carressed its muddy blood on me.
Torned flesh clung to my naked body
As I swam across the length of the Amazon
Searching for my dear salvation.
Dead bodies surround me.
I swam till I have strength, no more.
The dead looked into my eyes,
They haunt me, everywhere I go.
It warned, “Ariel, yours isn’t the only voice,
Wakeup from your hallucination.”
So I begged to be released and struggled.
But help… it never arrived.
I drowned in the sea of blood.
Then I woke up to the oozing stench of the reality –
I can only remember that I slept
On the wrong side of the bed
Now fully awake, I clutched the sheets
To find myself alone,
Far from my castle, my sanctuary.
Suddenly, my worth knocked on my door
Telling me to eradicate the negative thoughts –
Remnants from last night’s nightmare;
And remain positive with the situation.
I promise, I will find happiness within me
For the sake of our future.
