I'm not sure if my fascination with the deep ocean is inspired more by awe or dread. This undersea world both attracts and repels me in equal parts, and as a result, I am left hypnotized.
Creatively, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Thanks for stopping by... I hope you enjoy today's little ditty.
By the light of your silvery orb
in air thick with flotsam,
I mistook your pulse
for the twinkle of a star
and sent my wish into the great unknown.
Over time and tide,
your sting no longer pains me.
Memories washed out to sea.
