Poetry: “Drained”

Another mental health poem, from my life…

***~***~***~***

Drained

Vampiric attentions
Sink into my flesh
Cold and clammy fingers
With a solid grip

Clinging hard, heavy weight
Dragging at my feet
Unseen by the naked eye
I’m drained from head to toe

Struggling is quite futile
As grabbing grains of sand
I swim against the current
With reeds that grip my limbs

My inner fire flickers
Though somehow it burns on
Through almost drained to the bone
My body staggers on
