Beyond The Breakers

IMG_2257

The pull of the water shifts the sand beneath my toes, and I sink further with each ebb and flow.
The strong rip makes the feeling of uneasiness grow, and the tremor in my voice, that fear, shows.
Beyond the breakers the open water tempts and taunts, while images of fins start to haunt,
My imagination, shivering free and wild as a child, sees the nightmares swim forward all riled.
I stand my ground against the tide and waking dreams, to prove I can hold in my desire to scream.
I test my bravery verse my imaginations schemes, every ocean visit while the surface gleams.
Beyond the breakers the open water tempts and expands, spinning dizzily away from where I stand,
My imagination, shivering free and furiously fast, sees the briny sea grow fathomlessly vast.
Through the murky depths dark shadows flit, as the chest-high water tests the mettle of my wit.
Through rapid-firing impulses by mind tells me to quit, but I refuse to listen, to give in to it.
Beyond the breakers the open water tempts and shimmers, and I choose to dive into the glimmer,
My imagination, shivering free along with the rest of me, guides me forward peacefully.
