Flicker

by Loolwa Khazzoom • May 28, 2016 • Songs

You have the means
But not the consciousness
To help me
And I am left floundering
In the turbulent waves
Of the ocean
Which have the power
To drown me

I focus on
Keeping the faith
As the storms hit
And yet the despair
Of the discrepancy
Between what you can do
And what you choose to do
And the enormity
Of the task before me
Sometimes make the Life Force in me
Flicker
And I’m not sure
If I’ll make it

But I can’t talk to you about it
Lest the weight of your apathy
Itself sends me down
To the depths below
