Elokuu

I am a body of ocean

My face barely skimming the surface

I only stare starward (bound)

And this pathetic pain

And this sublime serenity

This my nadir and zenith

A wormhole between proximities

A worm in my stomach

I stomach the salt-filled bitterness

Give me clarity, darkness, depth

This is my phobic dream

To lie awake

To float away

To lose myself at the surface

Or tire out and drown into me

Into the body

But never face down

I see the Star forever

Despite the starless sky

A/N: It's a poem I wrote during a difficult time in my life. I used it as an anchor to keep me sane. It's the worst thing and the best thing I've ever written. Please review and tell me how it made you feel.
