Moonlight Swim

He went out to the quarry on that star-filled frigid night and jumped into the hollow pool, 80 feet in height The hewn rock walls weren't shocked to feel the waves upon their skin But the water bit the boy and froze his blood from deep within. The darkness of the sky pressed on his heart and slowed it's beat as the depths below absorbed his strength and sapped him of his heat Suspended for an hour at his forty four foot swim the flooded quarry took him on an underwater whim.
