From A Fish

The familiar ache in my jaw told me I was caught again.

Light, everlasting

Blinded my already tired eyes.

.

My body, wrinkled and cracked beyond repair

glided across the surface of the dusty pound.

Water tainted with red,

I knew I was a goner.

.

Her eyes watched curiously,

specks of gold glistening in the blistering sun.

Her eyes grew droopy,

sympathy filling them as they watched

my skin shrivel in the heat.

.

My gills continued to call for air

as the silver hook pulled from my cheek.

Flying into the horizon,

my soul flew out of my swollen body.

.

The sand was a casket around me,

smothering me with every stroke.

I wanted to be angry at her

Glittering eyes.

.

But all I could do

was smile.


Review and smile :-)
