Sadness

You are an ocean surrounding me,

So beckoning, and cool, you shimmer,

Reflecting my dreams, promising me mystery,

You come when I am lonely,

Wave after wave, and I enter,

Even though I am already aware,

That your mysteries are jagged teeth,

Eyeless faces, hidden beneath unfathomable depths,

Where invisible undercurrents wait to ensnare,

Twisting cold fingers, pulling me down,

You are water I cannot drink,

Even though I am so thirsty,

I come, I have nothing else.
