Lonely Static

Shackles secured to my wrists and ankles, 
Weighing me down like a stone
As it plummets to the very bottom
Of a lonely cerulean sea
I sink into the depths of solidarity, 
Static crackling in my ears, 
Imbuing them with meaningless words

The call of darkness is never-ending, 
Its talons squeezing life from my throat
I wheeze, burning lungs pleading for air
All the while, my lips crack into a shaky smile, 
Silver jewel-like tears pour from the abyss within

The loneliness doesn't fade
The static doesn't dissipate
I continuously descend
Down, down, down, 
Where the static crackles forever
