Only now

Sun, 01/31/2016 - 16:30 -- mm10

Only now,

the living, the loving and the dying

all come together

in this underwater world.

the water clear and transparent

as the glossy glass on a clean white window.

 

An honest man

in his pure white suit.

full of passion and hurt

inked upon the surface.

an astronaut from the universe up above

creating a new adventure down below.

 

It’s a deep mystery to see

on how this came to be.

 

Yet,

when the astronaut screamed with glory

the blue water screamed back.

and jellyfish ghosts sunk like a sob story.

 

This is the underwater house.

the sunken house full of untold secrets and

unkept promises.

a map drawn for a man

to reach his destination.

 

Only now,

the last discovery

is the one that counts the most.

This poem is about: 
Our world
