The Art of Drowning


I have always
been drawn to water,
the allure of being clean,
as if one dip beneath the surface
will wash all my cares away
I just hover,
lost in the fading colors
as depths rise,
no more crowded rooms
filled with empty conversation,
just sweet silence
it makes it easy to surrender,
an effortless glide

Drink Deep


there is something about a storm
that’s always soothed my soul,
the way the sky is falling
and the wind is calling,
the way the thunder echoes

others feast on liquid sunshine
and timid turquoise skies,
but I like the power of the night,
the amazing way it creates beauty
while the world sleeps


so that when daylight comes,
awakening the ocean waves
and the remnants of darkness
fade away,

that is what makes my heart beat
so I drink deep
