The Bottom

I’ve been to the bottom, she said
O, I have seen the depths
None are so woeful as me
I’d rather it were you instead.

I’ve been to the bottom, she said
O, you wouldn’t understand the depth
I’m the lowest of the low, me
No one has been this depressed.

I have seen right to the bottom, I said
O, I have seen the true depth
Fell straight to the bottom and through the trap door,
Headed straight for death.

I’ve been right to the hellish bottom, I said
O, even further than the deepest depth
Where darkness swallows every light
And there’s nowhere safe that’s left

I am right here at the bottom, I say
O, I’m tied down with the greatest weight; a depth.
I don’t think I’ll be coming back from here
It’s a one way gate; a death.
