|Dolphins and Sharks
Author: SwirlsOfInk PM
This is a poem that I had to write for class that I sort of fell in love with. It's about someone not knowing who to trust in their lives, and that slowly ends up killing them from the inside.Rated: Fiction K - English - Poetry/Tragedy - Words: 216 - Published: 01-29-13 - Status: Complete - id: 3096656

The waves dance and play
During a stormy winter day
The world grows slowly cold and dark
And now we can't tell the dolphins from the sharks.
Terror fills me as I drown in the sweet liquid called life
Being pulled under by a mysterious specter
My sorrow continues to fester
I don't know who to trust
Because I can't tell the dolphins from the sharks.
Author's note: Hey guys! I have finally decided to upload poetry, so please, reviews make the world go round!~~~
I wrote this for class (and I hope the teacher doesn't think I'm suicidal for using this poem), and I based it all of a line from a song called "freefalling", ehere they say, "We swim with the dolphins and the sharks, but now it's getting dark, we don't know who to trust".
I believe that this poem is about someone who can;t tell the bad people from the good, and it slowly tears her apart from the inside, ending with her suicide.
I would love to hear y'all's perspective on this poem, because I have a couple of ways it could go. Just PM me or comment if you want to take a go at trying to interpret it!
