This Won't Hurt a Bit

What craven wretch am I
To entertain such fancies?
Do I mould myself to fit?
Will darkness once more enfold me
When the cold blade of thought
Pierces that desperately sought?
I cry now as though I shed the last drops of my lake,
Yet immersion awaits.
Will I drown when the suspending thread snaps?
