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!
