Sunk (poem)

The sea swept me out

Away past the idle shore

If only you were a sparrow

In that moment my love

Bearing me up on wing

Away from the depths

 

The floor met me

In dark silence

Sand and debri floating around

Like a nebula

If only you were a secretive beast

Searching for gold amongst wreckage

 

I was cold and crushed

Embolisms and dust bones

Strange alien lifeforms salvaging my parts

If only

But you were not,

You were only what you were

 

My refuge
