The Sea (2)

Looking for my inner self
I knowingly submerged in
a sea of dirges,
I am Ahab searching,
a desperate mariner
muddled by madness,
this opaque ocean haunted
by ghosts of the past
who won't give me a pass.

I sank myself because
I feared loving myself,
so I drowned it in
heavy wet inadequacies
that seize my sight
and stir the fright
to take all the air
out of my sails,
for the sake of sanity
I must prevail.
