Sink, Float or Breathe

Sometimes you just loose,

Loose to your feelings,

Loose to yourself,

Loose your mind to your mind,

How deep can one sink, to keep floating?

Buoyant forces strand you, suffocate you?

But if you were to sink, sink to the bottom,

You would see what lay there,

You would see the darkness, the treasure that lies in that darkness,

But now you are there, can you live alone in that vast expansion of deep sea?

Can you remain thirsty even as you wade through the depths?

And surrounded by the sweet poison, can you bear the singe and sting on your flesh?

Will the dim wavering light beam entice you? But can you levitate out then?

Or is it wiser to stay in the shallows, breathe the mundane air,

Stare and wonder about the depths,

Imagine but never know, wish and dream but never feel the force of the waves,Β 

Never hear the sound of the soul underneath the silent deep blue sea?

Never feel the treasure with your eyes and your soul?

Never ravish the poison on your tongue?

Sometimes you just loose,

You clutch on to nothing as you fall, only surrender

Silent music of ripples mark your defeat,

You just sink, neither float nor breathe.
