Deep Water

Light, unable to pierce
Held in it’s place
Shows not it’s face
Here in the depths
Down where I drift
In the deep water

Night, evasive above
Blankets the waves
Anchor-less graves
Here in the depths
Down where I drift
In the deep water

Cries, haunting in tone
Echoing long
Giants in song
Here in the depths
Down where I drift
In the deep water

Life, left to the swell
Taken by tide
See without eyes
Here in the depths
Down where I drift
In the deep water

Sink, weightless to hold
Rooms without walls
Love without falls
Here in the depths
Down where I drift
In the deep water

Captive by freedom encircled by reason
Caught up believing in life without breathing
Solace in silence suspended in dreaming
Drawn to the hidden by forces of needing

Treasures uncovered in worlds undiscovered
Surfaces broken for dissident lovers
Lungs unadjusted in waters uncharted
Sounding the deep for the turbulent-hearted

  1. I neglected to mention this previously–but you do amazing things with rhyme, which expands your excellent imagery. Very impressive.
