The Harlequin Wave of Pleasure and Pain
Submersion is sweet comfort.
Nurse the pain with cool fresh liquid.
It's time to rest and heal.
But not for long, the future haunts me.
Ascension is abrasive and hostile.
Although battered and bruised, it's time to fight.
I don't belong here but there are things I must do.
Am I strong enough to get what I need?
It surrounds me but I can't have it.
Are others stabbed by this frustration?
I think not. Why did I bother to come?
Submersion is sweet home.
It's better down here.
They know me here.
Is there a way to stay?
I can just stay and rest.
