I Am A Dreamer Lost at Sea

Fri, 11/06/2015 - 12:12 -- Lilymae

I am a dreamer lost at sea 

without a life preserver. 

the waves crash against my skin 

beckoning me to let the water submerge my body

I am trapped 

the tides pull me towards the ocean floor

water fills my lungs

my arms flailing

feet kicking

Pushing myself up towards the surface. 

I am too afraid to leave this place.

the fish they bite at my ankles

convincing me to flee

I am so afraid of loosing the only thing in sight 

I follow them 

I am alone again

I am dreamer lost at sea
