Beyond Ocean Depth

       Beyond Ocean Depth

7 miles carried off by ocean waves
Drowning on my final days

Waking up with seaweed on the lips
Aimlessly traveling down another trip

The question dare not 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
suddenly it disappears 

Gazing evil in its eye
A slow-motion cry

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

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

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

Wondering deeper in my invented abyss
Where I followed a  kiss not to resist

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

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

Sadness hit harder when reliving my life in a flash
Knowing exactly  when my life hit in a tragic crash

Drowning in the depth of an ocean spill
A careless destine joining those with no will

           SKAT

This gives a real feeling of floating and yet sadness and tragedy. Just like the mystery the sea holds. I was lost in the drift of the words. Love, SuZ

I chose to read this as the first poem from your works. Life is really like an ocean and it's sheer immensity often leads us...well. .to our death! Anyway, that's food for a discussion. Meanwhile, may I forward my appreciation for such a beautiful poem. It speaks volumes about your poetic prowess and as a newcomer here, I will surely be going through all the other pieces gradually. Hope you have got my mail.

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.
