An Ocean Wishing to be a Desert

The ocean is vast and spacious

As my emotions become turbulent

With the tide.

My tears flood the space where ships have

Sank and buried treasure and sharks

Both dampen and excite the room.

A jewel encrusted crown weighs heavy on my


I know its radiant but it feels poisonous.

My whole body wants to shed its skin.

Staring above the dipping waves

I fear I cannot swim and then

I fear I cannot swim towards…

The whole scene is a vast and spacious ocean.

My tears are what is flooding the chairs

And producing the dolphins and the

Wishful thinker from eradicting

Itself from heavy seas and pirate ships.

All in that moment I see daring eyes

Looking back at me.

Oh to be a desert if only for a day!
