Beyond Ocean Depth

       Beyond Ocean Depth

7 miles carried off by ocean waves
No one is there to save me on my last days

Waking up with seaweed in my mouth
Aimlessly  traveling down south

The question I do not dare to ask
A journeys life ending my task

I see no butterflies, on my endless walk
Crossing shadows with a tormented talk

With no fear to all that appears
Reaching out to open a door, suddenly it disappears 

Staring  right before evils eye's
A slow motion drift drying off my cries

Pacing myself at the edge of all things
Entering a "Devil's realm" of only the  Ying

A low beam within the sun
Stepping back in a sandbox of fun

My life then dragged me right back into quicksand
Where as a child she let go of my hand

Wondering deeper in my own invented abyss
Where I followed a  kiss no one could resist

Without the guilt to grasp for air
I then observed something no one should bare

My body in front of me lost in the ocean drift
Hiding away at the bottom of oil mist

The sadness hit me harder when reliving my life in a flash
Knowing exactly  when my life hit its first crash

Drowning in the depth like an ocean spill
A careless destine joining those who also wrote of their will

    SKay, Wonderful imagination with being hauled off into the sea for miles, reminds me of the Life of Pi, but so much nicer in poetry.

    sounds so emotional, Irma. i can understand where you are coming from when you speak of how it can hit you when sadness takes its toll on you. it can change a lot, if we don't try and make it better, at least for a small while until the things we need to focus on are complete, or at least well. i hope you are doing great. have a beter night..Irma. ~Always&Forever Lynette

    I see LInda is asking "where you be" as well as me! Hope you are ok, IRma. I never got an answer to my question yet, if you had Utah represented or not. LUv, Andrea

    This is wonderful. Water is always cleansing. You could always yell for help if you can't swim. Poseidon God of the sea may be nearby you; the Sirens may also guide you to safety with their songs. Blessings, Joseph
